Where to get a capacitive fuel sender in uk?

Hi all,

Where could I get a capacitive fuel sender in the uk? I'm thinking of the type with no moving parts that you can cut to length.

Cheers, Larby

I've got one somewhere... How long do you need?

Pretty sure you've got a lot to do on the B28 before you need to worry about running out of fuel though!

Ha ha, it's not for the 28, it's for the carbon tank I'm building for a turbine bike, as yer do!

I realised I think I've got one knocking about too, I'm gonna need a 12" one probably but I can cut them to length eh.

Cheers, Larby

May be here, but you need to choose the lenght when you order the sender, no moving parts, except the float, excellent product, very reliable.

Frenchbruno - thanks but that's not the type I'm looking for, has to be a capacitive sender.
As it happens, the outboard in your profile pic was built by the same people as this bike, they have that outboard in the office!

Cheers, Larby

For the engine in my avatar, the company which was the Partner to the turbine engine project with Mercury was MTT, so the company you're talking about is this one, no?

Mtt 420r

Larby,
420HP for a bike!, it's the same power of my engine car!!!
I'm just guessing if you have a straight line long enought to reach the 261mph in Europe! An dwho is the pilot to test this project?

I hope the gillsensor;co.uk link is what you're looking after also.

Renegade - thanks for the link! Still not capacitive and the sender has to be mounted upside down. I'm going to just build a one off level sensor for now and I'm speaking to Gills about future requirements.
Thanks for the help everyone,

Larby
