I need to know the ohms that were used on a 1940 dodge 1 1/2 ton truck, i have to replace the float
I need to know the right ohms that was used in the gas tank for the reading, I am replacing the float part in the tank and cannot find the right ohms so that the gauge will work properly. Thank You Steve White
