Fuel gauge sensor
I have worked out many of the issues for my '74 280C except the fuel gauge. The fuel level sender is damaged - I broke the fine wire on the sender. I do not know how to repair this and have not found a source to buy a sender.
Anyone repair one of these type senders? Know where to buy one? Have one to sell? Here in the middle of the backwoods, there are not many salvage yards with MBs to pick over.
