    Any one know of a good place to order a gas tank and sending unit for an '87 K5?? The dealer wants way too much for them.

    I belive NAPA carries them.
    It's been a few years since I worked in the small rig biz, but I seem to remember getting them from there.

    Yeah just don't do what I did and go to a shop to get it fixed. They killed my pocket book after fixing my fuel pump/sending unit and gas tank. all well over a grand to fix! Of course now I would just drop the tank and fix it myself! Did the baffle in your tank break off, breaking your sending unit with it?

    Dont know, I havent pulled it apart yet. All I know is that my fuel filter keeps clogging with metal shavings and my fuel has not worked for years now.

    He ships to your door. I believe he is in boston and the parts are all new. He supposedly sells them to dealers. No problems with my stuff yet.
