"Right.  Intake manifold leaks and sticky PCV whistle has nothing to do with RPM.  My leak and sticky PCV whistling were not RPM related at all.  PS:  The intake manifold gasket is not part of the carb.  It's between the…"

"I agree.  I'll bet a year's wages it's either PCV or intake gasket.  Those both cause intermittent whistling and both disappear (usually) when idling."

Sammy replied to Sammy's discussion Whining noise from outer space
"Thanks, yes I did change it last year for other maintenance reason. But like the possible intake leaks this should occur while idling and not only while driving. "

"I would also try servicing the PCV valve.  It's a very quick and simple operation.  If you are only driving in the summer it may well be stuck or tacky enough to stick in a partially open mode sometimes.  This could cause the…"

Bad Guage?

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 6 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
