Perfect. Thanks Bill!
Now I just need to search through all my Cougar receipts and see what size tank I put in her. I can’t remember at this point.

Can you post how to test the thermistor?

Sure! Ground the wire to the thermistor at the sender (briefly) the low fuel light should light up. If you ground the wrong wire it should peg the fuel gauge on full. Or if you are more technically minded you can read the resistance between the thermistor connection on the sender and ground. Because the value is a function of temperature and the amount of current passing through it there isn't a single correct value if it works, but it should show continuity at a minimum. I have yet to find one that is intact and functional on an original sender. Usually this is what I find.

I would like to have the pickup for my xr7 refurbished
It is in fair condition and I think a good candidate to repair.
How do I get this process started?

Hi 1Maverick. You can send me a PM through the site here or call or text me at 480 239 5537. I don't charge until I have your sender completed and tested. I am currently pretty well caught up so less than a week for turn around time.
