Re: petrol sender unit

For a flat-rad Ten of 1932-34 a straight notched fuel tank dipstick (e.g. cut-off broom handle) should suffice, for cowled-cars 1934-39 a piece of rubber hose is needed to get round the corners in the filler pipe.

Peter is quite right , the two types of tank are different.
Well in terms of the nature and position of the tank sender unit.
I would be quite happy to swop an 'electric sender ' tank for your ( Hobsons)  tank, providing it is reasonably in reasonably good order.

What part of the country are you?

Re: petrol sender unit

hi Bob just seen your reply.  but the tank is back on the car and I would not take it off again it is in really good condition 
Ive made a curved dipstick out of plywood  and can manage quite well .
thanks for the offer . brian
