Need a part number or lead

Anyone have a part for this Worthington gauge/ sending unit?
Mine are clouded and I cant read the analog dial. I have Worthington working on this but am hoping someone can help me out wiith a part number to speed things up!

Mine has a single stud for the electrical connection, whereas everything I find now has 2 leads.

Hmmm

Unfortunately, that gauge has not been available for many years.

The only gauge that I am aware of is a flat vertical gadget that you tape to the side of the LPG bottle.

Then when you want to find out how much LP you still have, you throw hot water on the gauge, and the color changes telling you the level.

Or, you can remove the bottle, weigh it and subtract the empty bottle weight.

LPG, ball park, weighs 4 pounds per gallon.

Too much work... I'll live without the analog/ visual portion. When its empty its empty!

Thanks Andy!

If you found a gauge that has 2 leads, then buy it.

One of the problems with the original was that the gauge also had to be grounded.

That caused problems, since the metal to metal contact between the bottle, the hold down, the rod, the frame, etc, all had to be in good condition.

The new style, I would bet, uses a ground wire as well as the wire to the control panel.

Ill order those and simply make a new harness and include a ground.
