Sending units are not all the same.  Are we talking about some sort of MG
here?  At least four different sending units used in various models of MGB,
all of which are different than the MGA.  Someone recently bought a VDO
fuel gauge for use in their MGA, and proceeded to exercize my gray matter
for days trying to figure out how to adapt the stock MGA sender to work
with it.
