    I have thought for some time that I needed a fuel sending unit for my 87 TBI Burban, but b4 I bought one, I dropped the tank last nite to do the pump and found a plastic anti slosh maze inside. ok. well, it is secured down by plastic clips on steel pins and with the boucing it broke loose and had jammed against the sending unit arm, and also descintigrated the strainer thus killing the pump, so if you have a sending unit not reading right, and runnability problems, start here may be a same problem.

    P.S. I fixed it with push on steel cap locks at the hardware store. I never been so happy to be on 'E' /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks for the tip. That could be my problem. The gauge stopped going past 3/8 a little while back in my truck.

    Anybody know what would cause a gauge to stop at about 3/4 tank and just sit there? That's what mine is doing.
