    Does anyone know the range of resistance in a 73 K5 fuel sender? I'm thinking it's 0-30. Want to install ultralight gauges. Thanks.

    I think all GM fuel sender ohms from the 50's on up is 0-90 ohms. I recently replaced my fuel gau /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifge and it took a 0-90 ohm aftermarket gauge.

    mines a 72 and it read 130 ohms at 1/2 tank when i finally figured it out(burnt power wire).the guage works correctly so i dont know why it reads so high if the range is only 0-90.just my thoughts.i have stock guages also.
