Got some new corks for the sender unit from the Filling Station. Only came with a brass washer. Is there supposed to be a flat push on nut to hold the corks in place on the metal float rod? If so, mine is long gone. Or does anyone have any options for this?
Thanks again.

mine had the end of the rod bent.

i opted to go with neoprene floats :) cheap and good to go with most fuels even ethanol

I do not know the details of how the float is retained on a ‘31 flue gauge sending unit.

What I do know is that I regret installing a new cork float on my ‘37 sending unit. After less than 3 months it had absorbed enough gasoline that it did not register correctly. It still worked but indicated at least 1/4 tank lower than actual. I think it is even further off now.

So now I need to adapt either a neoprene or brass float.

Model A part suppliers have plastic floats. Many sell the brass float. It is SA-99 at the Filling Station for example.
