I could go to my lockup and check my old tank but it's miles away and with all the helpful folk on here....is there only one position that the sender locates in? The mechanic working on my Capri at the weekend questioned the closeness of the fuelling S to the twin exhaust. (Essex engine)

Yes, it should fit into the tank at roughly the 10 o’clock position and then twist clockwise about 30 degrees so that the pick up pipe is pointing towards the bottom of the tank.

I think my send and return pipes are sitting about 10 o'clock so they need a wee bit more turning?

Any photos anyone?

you got to orientate by the position of the pipe inside the tank..
so you line up with the pipe facing down at max.. then rotate anti-clockwise till the tangs line up and the sender drops in to the tank.. then twist clockwise to stop ..

the 2 pipes (on yours) may not end up exactly vertical .. kinda 10-11 oclock sounds about right ..
bearing in mind the shape of the hole in the tank and the wedges on the sender - it wont rotate a full 45degrees

Just a wee V8, hopefully Rumbling again soon...

This is of a single pipe version showing the feed but the return, if fitted, points in roughly the same direction. It’s only the internal pick up pipe that points down at 6 o’clock when the sender is locked, not the feed or return pipes.

This was a temporary fitting to my injection tank before anyone asks... :thumbup1:/>
