Correct sending unit for gas tank

Asked by Feb 25, 2017 at 05:44 PM about the 1987 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1987 F-150 with a 351cid engine.  It is NOT fuel injected - it has a
carburetor.  It is 2wd.  The sending unit on the front 19 gal steel tank failed.  I
cannot find the correct replacement sending unit.  The old one has ONE line out,
not one out and one in for venting.  The plug is two-wire.  Where can I find a
unit?  I have had no luck with the usual suspects (Advance Auto, Autozone,
NAPA, LMC Truck, etc.

Check this sight out and see if you see the right one..... https://www.carid.com/replace/fuel-pump-and-sender-assembly-mpn-fmd010495.html?singleid=100125629&url=812028

Sorry, wrong unit. The one you referred me to has two outlet lines (not one) and appears to have a 4 wire plug, for a fuel pump. My truck has a mechanical fuel pump on the engine block, nothing in the gas tank. Appreciate your interest. George
