In cases where the Gasoline Gauge in the instrument cluster reads 3/4 full when the tank is completely full it may be the result of a change in calibration of the gauge due to a feed back through the ignition switch.

A new Gauge which is unaffected by the above condition went into production about 1-14-55, and is now available in Parts Stock.


Description:  Gas Gauge Dash Unit

New Part No:  1518407

Old Part No:  1518152

All of the early type gauges in Parts Stock are being returned to the source for correction.

As a means of identification, both coils on the early gauge are red.  The Left Hand Coil on the new gauge is green.
