I called Moeller and apparently they no longer make the unit. They suggested that I contact Centroid products directly as they were the OEM. However, he did say that I could use the Reed unit # 395059-1005C as the replacement. I also asked about the possibility of using a 3 wire unit in place of my 2 wire unit and he said that it would work just the same. Any thoughts on the last comment?

Not sure but the 3 wire unit has a positive 12 volts needed. You may have to add some wiring. I would not use it I would just go with the one from SKIDIM.

I think that you may have the unit that the gentleman at Skidim recommended. Do you know what the model # was? I can't seem to find the model numbers on Skidim.

Weird find too....on Moeller's site, this is how the Reed switch fuel sending unit is listed:

Reed Switch Sending Units:

A Direct Original Equipment Manufactured sender replacement by WEMA USA

So could the WEMA unit referenced by ProstarSammy above be the same exact model as the one you have mtajpa?

Ha ha...i didn't even notice until you linked it but even the end of the link is WEMSSS-10 so I bet it is the exact same one.

Thanks for the help. I'm going to order it tomorrow.

FYI, WEMA has a 25% off coupon on their home page until 12/31 for those who may be interested in ordering.

Their units are more reliable than the factory also so you should be good to go
