my fuel gauge read "E" so I followed the TM and pulled the sending unit and it Ohm'd out to specs. I reinstalled it and ordered a new fuel gauge. I get the new gauge installed and it's and still on "E". I next ohm'd it in place with a full tank and it's reading 216 ohms = near empty. I made sure the orientation was correct and still read 216 ohms. I removed the sending unit then removed the float off of it. Placed float by itself in a gallon of diesel and it sank to the bottom. Has anyone seen a float stop floating? I pulled a known working sending unit out of another 802a threw the float into same gallon of diesel and it stayed floating. I just hope this can help someone else.
