Q & A

What's in the Box

The tank comes with a plug for the drain hole at the bottom, and a gasket and mounting screws for the sending unit (the flange for the sending unit has at least three, 5-and 6-screw patterns in it to accommodate nearly any original early Ford or aftermarket sending unit).

 The fuel line attachment port is on the front of the tank (with a tube that reaches to the bottom/center of the tank) and is threaded ½-20. It has a flat seat at the bottom of this threaded hole, not a tapered seat as would be needed for an inverted flare connection.

 The tank does not have a dedicated vent line or fuel return port (as might be needed in a fuel injected arrangement) therefore, a vented cap would be required (such as the Speedway 911-39001), or the customer would have to modify the tank to suit their needs.

 The inside of the tank has 2, sturdy, baffles to control side-to-side slosh.

 The tank has a factory-applied, light-gray finish to resist corrosion.

You are right. The hole at the front IS the fuel pickup port. We do not stock the stock-style fitting for attaching the fuel line. (It uses the same arrangement as a stock, 1933-34 Ford would use.) This connection is threaded ½-20 and has a flat seat at the bottom (NOT an inverted flare seat/cone). We do not offer the Original Equipment style fuel line connection for this. I suggest that you contact the folks at Bob Drake for such an item.

Stewart Warner 385C-F R Swing 6-12 Fuel Level Sending Unit, 240/33 Ohm
(Part #665385C)
                        What brand of gauge will you use?
This Stewart Warner brand fuel sender is compatible with all Stewart Warner and Classic Instruments fuel gauges.

How deep is your tank?
Measure the depth of your tank where the fuel sender arm will be located. Choose the sender with an operating range which includes that dimension.

Right or Left-swing arm?
Most fuel gauge senders attach with a 5-screw pattern. Two of these screws are farther apart than the other three. Position yourself such that the 2 wider-spaced holes are closest to your chest; a right side sender will have the arm (or "float") extending to your right, and a left side sender will have the arm extending to your left. This only matters when replacing an existing sender. A first-time installation can use either one, just drill the mounting holes accordingly.

OHM
The OEMs used several different resistance ranges for fuel level indication over the years. However, some of the aftermarket gauge manufacturers follow the common Stewart Warner values (240 ohm empty, 33 ohm full). The gauges and senders that we carry (385 & 391’s) use these standard Stewart Warner values.
