fuel gauge sending unit

I have an Airstream Classic motorhome model 345 and I am trying to find a fuel gauge sender. Airstream says it is discontinued and so does GM. Any ideas?

this thread should start you off:

i seem to remember that someone had to 'blend' two units to make one. one other post mentioned testing the sender first to make sure the sender was the problem.

I recently had a new aluminum fuel tank made up for my rig to replace the rusting original. The sending unit was as bad as the tank and also needed replacement. After contacting Airstream, I was told to pick one up at NAPA, which is where THEY go when they need one. You'll have to specify the correct ohm range so it will be compatible with the fuel gauge on the dash. As I recall, it only cost $20-30. Good luck.

The easy way is to use the reset button on the odometer and get fuel when you reach 300 miles. We have been doing that for years.
Good luck with it.

I got a sending unit from centriod products in Florida. They can build anything and even include a low level indicator to boot. The price was very reasonable but removing the tank was very difficult to say the least.
