87 22r fuel sending unit

Hi I'm new here n I picked up an 87 4x4 5spd with 251xxx miles a few months ago. When I got it the gas gauge doesn't really work right. When I fill up it says full but when I drive like 60 or so miles the gauge goes to empty. I think it might be the fuel sending unit but I'm not sure. And if it is I found one from a 92 for $50. Will that one work for my truck?

You might try pulling your sending unit out and cleaning the windings with some electrical contact cleaner.

I had the same problem with my 87; dropped the gas tank and found that the winding on the sending unit were worn on bottom half. Mine would register until it got to a half tank then go to nothing.

Don't know about the fit from a 92, I would drop the tank and put the old one then you should be able to see if the other one is the same.

Later,
