Fuel gauge sensor
I just received a fuel sensor that I bought on ebay. It appears to work, based on my ohmmeter. (I plan to check it on the bike today.)
The sensor must not have been in fuel for a while, because the sensor housing (and to a lesser extent the arm that holds the float) are rusted. Should I
a) put it in the tank as is and hope that any flaking will be caught by the petcock screen;
b) Try and sand it down with a dremel or whatever;
c) Try to replace the housing with the one from my current sensor;
d) Not install it at all?
