Tech- - FUEL / SNOTTY! Sending Units
« on: June 13, 2014, 04:36:07 PM »
I like the long one on the right end.  The two on the left are what I have in there now.  How much do you want for that one silver one on the right?
I take it that's Jay?  Remember, I've only talked with him on the phone, never met in person.

What is a '97 Magnum?  Do you mean a '97 Dodge Truck that had the 5.9 Magnum motor in it?  Just curious....

On another note.  I took a couple of pics of the sending units.

UPDATE!  One bolt sheared off of the yoke and the other side bolt is gone as well as that U-clamp.  The other side U-clamp is in place, without the cup however.  I don't know if the one that is sheared caused the problem, and it sheared when the other one let go.  I tried to thread a bolt into the open hole where the one was missing but it is stripped.  I have some work to do....

However, those glaspacs that I hate so much actually helped - they took the brunt of the drive-shaft when it let go, thus saving the shaft from serious damage.  There is a small dent in the shaft; I will need to get it checked for balance when I fix/replace the yoke.

That reminds me Scott.  I found the box with the sending units.  I was out there so long looking for them Elaine sent out a platoon to search for me.

Look for 5, nap for 30; look for 5, nap for 30....

I had one come apart on my 74 Barracuda. Not fun, I was just north of Grants Pass doing 85mph at 11pm. Have fun, just make sure the driveline didn't bend, and hopefully the bolts broke and can be backed out easily.

That's my hope too; still have not looked.  Was going to today but I'm feeling lazy - there's always tomorrow.

Took the Gremlin out for a short drive to the Church last night - rear u-joint decided it no longer wanted to serve the car.  Boo!  Don't yet know it if was a cup or the u-clamp.  The joint is still on the shaft and looks good.
It's a Mopar A Body 8.75 rear if you don't remember.

Have you checked with Year One?  They should be the same as those used for a Magnum or Super Commando motor.

OK, others will hopefully chime in here, but at TDC #1 will not be lined up.  I believe that is a common misnomer.  Someone correct me if I'm wrong!
When you say "lined up," is the rotor is pointing towards the left or the right?

SJ is still a while from me.


You've checked fuel flow and you know you have electricity to the coil.  One thing left in my armchair Doctor's Office, check the timing chain - see if the rotor is turning.

You said it "tried to fire."  If it's trying, turn the distributor a little while starting.  It helps if you have a remote starter button so you can turn it wile the motor is turning over.  You can see what I mean by viewing this video of the first starting of my son's AMC 401 (407) in his '73 Gremlin:

No big rush; been living with it for 10.5 years.  Did you get those pictures taken though?

OK, someone has to ask: you did fill the tank with some gas?  (Not trying to be cute but have seen it happen....)
