[Healeys] Fuel Gauge dampener

I believe the quality of the resistor in the sending unit can be the
problem. After market sending units have a lot of space between the windings
and some have single contacts. The original ones have very tight windings
and may have duel contacts although I am not sure about the last point.

The gauges with voltage stabilizers work in a different resistance range You
would have to change out all of the electrical gauges. 


I think the problem with the fuel gauge jumping around may be related to the
condition of the contacts in the fuel sending unit. Maybe try cleaning those
up before trying anything drastic.
