    most of the 1st gen gurus are long gone, wish I had more better knowledge myself. there are some outlets that sell universal floats that can be retrofitted. most fords use a 30-70ohm float and gauge.

    No one makes any as far as I know, luckily someone still makes the gasket and locking ring at least.

    I'd find a way to mount the fuel level sender from a carbureted Mustang (readily available and should work fine) to your stock sending unit because in the carbureted cars the sending unit itself is just 1 or 2 hardlines (1 for send and there's only a second one if there's a return line) and the level sender. It's pretty simplistic:
