|Float on fuel surface|
|Float pushed to the bottom of the tank.|
The float didn't seem to move completely freely and stuck at the bottom until I flicked it and it floated back to the surface.
I then reconnected the fuel gauge and the battery. Initially the gauge read full and with the float pushed down it read 1/4 and returned the full when the float was released.
Whilst I'm still slightly concerned about the "stickiness" of the float I know know that the wiring must be correct so I refitted the dash, boot, cap and steering wheel etc and got the car ready for the weekend in the hope that the 1/2 hood will arrive and I can get out regardless of the weather. If it doesn't I'll take the front wheels off and fit the mud flaps and the stainless steel bighead nuts, bolts and penny washers arrived earlier in the week.
