    Has anyone tried to fit the fuel gauge from the Escort Mk1 and 2 into the Marina 3 dial dash pod?

    Sorry for so many questions, are you saying that a classic mini fuel sender, when connected to the escort fuel tank sender, reads correctly on the Marina fuel gauge?

    Regards

    Are you saying that you take the arm unit off the mini sender and weld/solder it onto the original escort sender without the need to cut and shut the pipework

    That's what I did a few years ago...there is a write-up in Pitstop somewhere (2016ish)

    Hybrid Sender (2016_04_26 17_05_56 UTC).jpg

    NB - this is a later Sierra unit with a return pipe. Smiths Classic sender unit carefully removed & soldered onto the Ford pickup.

    There are a number of different TB9010 sender units.

    Does anyone know the ohm range for the Marina?

    Regards

    Hiya lily red roadster

    I have the Ford sender out but using a normal soldering iron doesn't move it.

    Can you remember what you did to remove the arm mechanism?
