Looks like a standard universal float sensor to me. If you want the same thing again then there's loads on ebay. Alternatively there are conductive sensors that fit down the same hole, but have no moving parts as such. They're much better for use on powerboats and last longer. I'll try to find a link but google will bring loads up if you search, may be a couple on ebay too.

That sensor is the same as the one i am hunted for.

You can remover the casing and clean up the workings inside with wirewool but like mine as you replace the casing the tags and contact break and i found it hard to solder with out damaging/ melting the plastics as you need alot of heat.

Its a smiths Gauge product.

after my research i found a company in the states here a email i got from a them showing the part number price and website. The guys name is Charles Kulbeth. I will be finding what vehicles they were used on this week as charles wants $65 off them.

The part # is TB 9011 kit. for 65.00 plus S/H. We have them in stock. Call tech line to place order.

A guy here called Dave aka "Ringowner" has got a spare one for me in which i need to reply back to him as yet.

Good find.would of thought it was from old british leyland cars!

Mines got a 300mm float rod so it may of been used for the rovers?
