Paulster2 is correct. They can look up the part number. They may need to ask you some questions to figure out which harness you're after which may involve looking at some diagrams. When dealing with parts departments I find taking a box of doughnuts works wonders. You might be able to find it yourself by browsing/searching fordparts.com (Official Ford ...

Odds are Paulster2 is correct. Unfortunately, it seems like you need to drop the tank to replace the sending unit. Make sure a replacement is available before going that far, though. I suspect the original Ford part is long discontinued and aftermarket parts may be special order (not on the shelves at your local parts store). If you're really lucky, the ...

The sensor end of the gas gauge is a rheostat. What occurs is the part of the rheostat goes "dead", or no longer reads as it should, which is why it drops to dead empty. To fix this, you need to put in a new tank sensor, which is usually collocated with the fuel pump in the tank.

Even high performance cars can't stop on a penny - the brakes have to do work and turn the kinetic energy in to heat. There will be a maximum rate at which this work can be done - if you fitted bigger, more powerful brakes then these in turn, would put a greater load on the tyres and demand more from the suspension too (the suspension has to put weight on ...

You have air in your system, which is either causing pump cavitation or hot spots. I took a look around on the internet to see what other sites are saying for bleeding the system (which is what you need to do). I could not find any that suggested there are bleeder screws to clear out the gas pockets, so the next best thing is to have you park the truck ...
