I've been reading thru some of the post concerning aftermarket fuel sending units to replace a worn out factory unit. My fuel guage doesnt work. I swapped the guage in the dash and it made no differeence so I'm pretty sure my problem is the sending unit. I have not dropped my tank yet. I don't want the car out of action too long so I want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row when I do. I saw that several people have used a universal kit from Summit. I spotted a similar looking kit on Ebay. Can anyone tell me if this kit will be usable? Ebay#260933871251.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.

It will work. I have the same one in my tractor. The bolt pattern on the round top plate was the same as the original on the 60 year old beast.

You'll have to modify it to work in the Fiero, but it will work fine as long as it's 0-90 ohms. I got mine from egauges.com (I got all of the gauges from there, too). I used the Summit sender on the Fiero because I was ordering other stuff from them at the time.

3.4 DOHC swap is complete and running, now just have to finish the rest of the car...

What did you have to modify on the Summit sender for it to work?

Lots of bending & guessing, etc. Make sure the wires dont get caught up on the float.

It will work somewhat but never like the original sender.

Id recommend buying a whole new unit and sell your old one on Ebay

I tried the Summit universal unit, and had mixed results. It worked, but not good enough for me to trust - so I bit the bullet and spent the cash for a sending unit made for the Fiero.
