Correct sending unit for gas tank

Asked by Feb 25, 2017 at 05:44 PM about the 1987 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1987 F-150 with a 351cid engine.  It is NOT fuel injected - it has a
carburetor.  It is 2wd.  The sending unit on the front 19 gal steel tank failed.  I
cannot find the correct replacement sending unit.  The old one has ONE line out,
not one out and one in for venting.  The plug is two-wire.  Where can I find a
unit?  I have had no luck with the usual suspects (Advance Auto, Autozone,
NAPA, LMC Truck, etc.

Check this sight out and see if you see the right one.....

Sorry, wrong unit. The one you referred me to has two outlet lines (not one) and appears to have a 4 wire plug, for a fuel pump. My truck has a mechanical fuel pump on the engine block, nothing in the gas tank. Appreciate your interest. George
