Our 82 Dodge B250 camper van has no fuel gauge readings. After checking all wiring, we dropped the tank and it is the sending unit. We found out that the van has been retrofitted with a 36 gal plastic fuel tank rather than the standard 22 gal metal. We cannot seem to find a sending unit on the market for the 36 gal tank.
Any ideas, links or part numbers appreciated from the forum. Information always appreciated. Thanks

Extra info - 5.9L 360 V8 - extended cargo body

The 36 gallon tank was optional on the B250. It may not be as common, as the aftermarket seems to be only supplying 22 gallon parts.
If you have the old sending unit, you may be able to send it off to be rebuilt. Other than that, maybe someone has access to the 1982 Dodge van parts book for the original part number.
I can't speak to the originality of the plastic tank, but it may have been an OEM item.

Sending units are similar for every tank with any changes related to DEPTH of the tank. Is the depth the same?
