    Gonna be second hand I dare say, unless on the off chance Rare Spares can get you one but unlikely.

    Don't think there new available unless you try rare spares or ebay.

    Other than that Pick n Payless hasd a few vr/s utes last time I was up there.

    How do youy know you need new sender anyway?

    You could always try one from a fuel gauge kit. I fitted aftermarket gauges to one of my cars years ago ane the fuel gauge came with the sendor. its an option. But I would be looking for one at a wreckers if they arent available new.

    I was wondering if that was what you meant. Yeah I looked at getting the resistence changed on a sender once so it would work on a later model car. I ended up getting a second hand one because to change the way it worked was going to be $150. Where as i bought a SH one for $45. The sensor off the earlier model was actually working backwards which i thought was weird.
