If it were me, I would buy another sending unit. Trying to clean your old one might prove difficult or at the very least a PITA. Someone here probably has one.....just post something in the Mall.
I have ordered a complete "universal" 0-90ohm float-type sender from eBay - $22.
I plan to surgically remove its variable potentiometer and mount it to the Fiero plate that's welded to the tube. Its position will precisely maintain the original swing, axis of rotation, and distance from the mounting plate. My intent is to replace the original design (terrible) with something that's much more robust. 50 years ago I did something similar on a Jaguar - it worked well.HOW ABOUT JB WELD (OR ???) AROUND THOSE TUBES, ON THE TOP OF THE MOUNTING PLATE?
