Scott Drake Fuel Tank Sending Unit With Brass Float 3/8" 1965-1968 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful personnel I give CJ a thumbs down for lack of detail on the page for their fuel sending units and a thumbs up for the staff helping me get the right one. There are seven of these units listed, six of them Scott Drake. It can be confusing. Only by chatting online with a CJ rep did I learn that the 3/8" unit id for a V-8. Why can't that be listed in the product description? Likewise, if the 5/16" is for a six cylinder tell us that so we don't have to bug your staff. While I haven't installed the unit yet the reviews were positive so I don't anticipate any problems. But again, more detail in the descriptions would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great and easy to install I replaced a cheap aftermarket unit that was registering the wrong amount of fuel in the tank. The plastic float barrel sprung a leak. I've had great success with other Scott Drake products, so figured it was worth the extra few bucks. Installation was easy as the tank was almost empty. I did put the rear end of the car on jack stands to give me extra room to work. I used a new flexible fuel hose to connect the unit to the hard line which is the recommended procedure. I used a tiny bit of glue to hold the O-ring in place while I was doing the installation. Took me about 30 minutes total.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Replacement Nice replacement part. I wish it came with a nut for the wiring- I stripped the first one I ordered, turns out a metric nut fit, but learned this through trial-and-error. Easy install after that and fit perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great Took a couple of tries to get it on right. The new rubber gasket was perfect but the new retaining ring didn't work. I had to use the original.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Had to get a new O-ring, but other than that everything went very well. The accuracy is much better than the original over the entire range.

Product Questions

I install a NEW sending unit in my 65 an a stain Steel fuel tank..An I still having trouble with my gage. I replace all the wiring under the dash & a new gage & a new unit that feed that gage..What is going on that I can't a true reading...What wrong??

Asked by: ourmustangs
You could try directly grounding the sending unit to see if that makes a difference. The next thing to try would be to remove the sending unit and check that the float doesn't have fuel in it. If that is ok, ground the sending unit and manually operate it while having someone watch the gauge and see how accurate it actually is, it is possible the float arm could be bent.

I'll be purchasing your 16 gallon 65-68 mustang tank for my 1936 Chevy PU project. I'm running a naturally aspirated 350 Chevy, my Classic Instruments fuel gage is 240-33 OHM. Will the Scott Drake pump match my gauge? What other parts will I need?

Asked by: Tom 36PU
No it will not match those ohms. We would not know what else you would need to install into your product.

How many ohms is this sender?

Asked by: Joea
10 ohms for high reading and 73 ohms for low.  As per the shop manual.  You may see as low as 6 to 8 ohms for high or full.  73 ohms for low or no fuel.

Scott Drake Fuel Tank Sending Unit With Brass Float 3/8" 1965-1968 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: We recently installed a disc brake conversion on our Forgotten Fastback project car. The next step in our restoration is to install the brake lines. When you're installing brake lines you want to do fuel lines at the same time since they do share a lot of the mounting hardware. Before we can get involved with that, we're going to install this fuel tank and this Scott Drake Sending Unit.

This is our premium fuel tank for all 1964 through 1968 Mustangs. These are made in North America and come coated to avoid rust, have the same 16 gallon capacity as the factory tank, and the included drain plug. We'll also be installing this Scott Drake Fuel Sending Unit. It features the correct style brass float and in this case it has a 3/8 outlet, which will work perfectly with the 3/8 fuel line we'll be installing in our Fastback.

For this installation you'll need a hammer, a punch, strip caulk, 3/8 ratchet or preferred 3/8 impact gun, 3/8 socket, 1/4" ratchet, and a 5/16 socket. Before we put the tank in the car we're going to install the sending unit. Since we have a new tank and a new sending unit our normal steel punch is fine. If you're working with one that has fuel in it already you want to make sure you use a brass punch to avoid sparks.

We're going to start by installing the gasket, and now our sending unit. You want to make sure the two tabs on the sending unit line up with the two tabs on the tank and slide a locking ring over. Once it's locked in we're ready to install on the car. Now we're going to install some strip caulk. You want to make sure you have a solid bead all the way around the outside. Now we're going to put the tank into place. Now we're going to install the mounting screws to the fuel tank. You can do this with a ratchet; an impact gun or an impact driver will make it a lot easier.

Now we're ready to install the fuel filler pipe and the fuel filler hose. Our original pipe was in good shape, so we're going to go with that one here. We start by installing the gasket first and now we'll fit this through the taillight panel. Now we're installing the hose. We're going to move it up a little bit to make it easier to go on. Install the bottom clamp first. We'll leave this clamp loose, and we can tighten it a little bit, but you want to make sure there's some play in it.

Now we'll install our filler pipe screws and make sure that they go through the gasket. We're only going to install four. The fifth hole down here is going to be for your gas cap. Now that the filler pipe is tight to the body we'll put this clamp in place and tighten it down and our installation's finished. Now that our fuel tank is installed we're ready to move forward with our fuel and brake lines next. Installation of the tank should take you really no more than an hour. Stay tuned for more updates for our Forgotten Fastback.
