Title: Aprilia fuel gauge
Post by: peterblenk on 14 August, 2019, 10:11:36 AM
Does anyone have drawings, sketches, or photos to show how the sender mechanism goes together? Also, is there a source for parts - especially the large Mazak piece? The two I have are crumbling and also warped.

Hi Peter
Here is a sketch I did of the fuel gauge sender that I did some time ago to remind me how it worked.
Hope it helps

Blimey that's even worse than the one on the Augusta!

Thank you, Geoff; this is very helpful. I am told that
someone, perhaps in Switzerland, made new ones. Any idea who that could be? I was thinking that it might be possible to scan and 3-D print the offending Mazak part in a better material, such as aluminium. Peter
