1995 fuel sending unit rebuild kit??

The brake line behind the tank got a leak so while dropping the fuel tank, both lines broke off the sending unit because they were rusted so bad. Ford wants like $400 for a new sending unit! I see autozone sells a rebuild kit, anyone use these? How does it work??

My Ford listing has 6 different sending units. Only one is more then $400, Unfrotunatly they all go by the same part number. I think the only thing different is the float arm and pick-up length depending on which of the 6 tanks you have. The common 19 gal steel midship is $320

Same p/n for 6 different units?? I'd still rather not spend $320 if I don't have too. I'm going to take a pic of what i'm dealing with. Thanks, Mike

OK, been ordering lots of parts to fix this truck myself but I still need to address this sender unit. Any idea where to get one?? LMC has one for $429.95!!!! I'll sell it for parts before I spend that kind of money.

Did a search and found a Co. in OH that rebuilds them. I just sent it out on the 26th so we'll see. Was quoted $139 which is ALOT less than Ford wants!!!

Fuel Pump

Anyone know how fast you should expect the fuel filter bowl to fill up when cranking the engine. I can't get my truck to start and thought it might be the fuel pump. Fuel flows in but not incredibly fast.
