    When replacing a gas tank do you need to replace sending unit? My sending units works fine, but Just want to do the smart thing.

    A new sending unit for an EFI truck will cost you well over $300 from GM. So if the one you have works, keep it. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Finding one of those sending units used around here is an exercise in futility--the lines rot right off them in less than 5 years here--I've spent many hours in the junkyard looking for a good one for customers cars,and your right,the dealer price is usually 300 to 500 bucks /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gifdepending on application--they are rapists! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    LMC has very reasonable prices...I want to say about $125 for an '87.
