12 volt fuel gauge?

Post by Ronnie Scot » Thu Dec 25, 2008 8:53 am

Hi Folks,

I have converted my M201 to 12 volt electrics - quite a big and expensive job but very successful and worth doing.

However, the fuel gauge is a problem. I've still got the original gauge in place but it doesn't register accurately (no surprises there).

Does anyone know if there is a 12v gauge and sender unit which I could fit?

I'm sure most Jeep part dealers also have reproduction 12 Volt Sender units and Guages available. MB or GPW parts should be interchangable without a problem.

I've replaced a 6 volt with a 12 volt guage in my M201 when I still had it...someone had converted the electrics before I bought it, and fried the guage.
