Let me see if I can clear things up. The thing I was working on was the fuel level sender unit. On a 126 it is located in the fuel tank on the left side. To get access, remove the back seat, and there is a rubber cover plug that has to be removed to gain access to the sender. Take the plug out, remove the electrical connector, and then you need the 1-7/8" socket to unscrew the thing. It is about 1.5" in diameter and about 12" long. Unscrew a small slotted nut from the bottom to remove the outer case and expose the inside working parts. Does that help? Then follow my previous instructions. On a 124 the sender is accessable from the trunk if my memory is still working. Top center of the fuel tank.
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave
