    For another day me thinks
    What would happen of you fitted an inline resister, would that increase the reading to 'full" ?

    I have absolutely no idea
    But at the moment empty is empty, and full reads 1/4.
    All set by moving the sender float up and down.

    OK. Try this, failing having a 10k resistor to hand, get a 21w car bulb (indicator), and put it in line. Does the reading increase? If so that is the way to go

    The guy I met from Spiyda Design at stoneleigh last year was incredibly helpful when I discussed mine with him (I hadn't fitted their unit at that stage, but had purchased it a year earlier). I recommend you give them a call and explain what you have done so far, they seem a nice bunch willing to help.

    I've used the same sort of conversation box.

    Mine had two adjustment screw. One to adjust the needle movement (empty to full) & the other to adjust the size of the arc. Mine did the same as yours until I change the size of the arc.

    I had to go between the two with small adustment to get it right.

    Your cars coming on great

    Cheers.
