Could anyone give me a source for a new or rebuild gas tank sending unit for a 1935 1205 Seven Passenger Phaeton? Many Thanks, George

KM Lifestyles has been able to repair or reproduce many of the various senders used in those years. Several on the forum are using their products.

Yes KM is great. But caution! They made me an EXACT replacement sender that included a cork float. After installation later, I found the cork was not treated in any way and so the cork float got eaten up by the ethanol.
Down comes the tank again and I had to get a replacement of the cork float with a plastic one.

Solution: see if they can put on a plastic float (I did) or coat the cork with gas tank liner paint or whatever it is..is it a paint? I brought this to their attention but it was when the pandemic was starting to take hold.
I do not know if they actually made the change.
