Post Rusty Tank

Just to - day I was salvaging parts off a tired 1979 240D and noticed the fuel tank had NO HOLES PUNCHED .

I grabbed the fuel gauge sender, there's some fungus build up in it, but I know how to clean them .

It turns out that soaking them in purple de greaser saturates the composite float dammit .

LKQ raised the sender price, it used to be $16, now it's $22 .

Still a bargain .

Keep us posted .
