i have a 74 HJ kingswood sedan that i recently bought as a daily driver/ project car. it runs nicely but but fuel gauge doesn't work, which is anoying since i've only just got it and don't know how long a tank will last me. does anyone know if i should start ripping apart the dash, or will it more likely be the sending unit in the actual tank?

While the Sedan and Ute/Tonner/Van senders are different, they all create the same resistance for the gauge at full, and empty so they will all work the gauge the same.

Your best bet is to remove your sender and pickup (which sounds like it is faulty anyway) or buy a second hand one (really cheap...) and take it and your fuel gauge along to an auto instrument mob. Ask them to replace the sender and calibrate the gauge and sender together. Then you will have the RAREST gauge in the world
