Paul, Randall - I've been looking. I found pictures of the Omix-ADA
Fuel Level Float Part # 17729.01 for Jeeps. It may work, but I can't
seem to find any stores in the region that stock it. May just need to
order one to try it. I saw the brass one for the Mustang (FM-EF005B or
C0AZ-9202B), but also saw a comment that the groove was too big for use
on a Spitfire. Looks like Ford uses a thicker wire. May try and take
the sender to a Ford dealer parts department and see if they have it and
I've checked TRF, Moss, and Spitbits and can't find the float. I also
looked at my GT6 parts catalog and don't see a part number for the float.
