I receive a few emails a month asking about fuel tank sending units for the ’67 beetle. My ’67 still has its original unit. However, I have helped a few friends install the aftermarket versions. The troubles I’ve seen are; incorrect fuel levels, fuel vapor and overall poor quality. If you can’t locate a German unit, our good friends at Wolfsburg West have done it again for the vintage VW comunity by reproducing this much needed part.
“Is your fuel tank gauge not quite on the level? Or, worse yet, perhaps your early Beetle cabin is reeking with fuel vapor? If so, the problem may be your fuel tank sending unit. Over time, the pivot point of the unit can wear, causing a release of fuel vapors that ultimately find their way into the passenger cabin. Conversely, cracks can form in the float device to cause the level indicator of your fuel gauge to read inaccurately. Unlike other aftermarket versions, our new reproduction units are made as original. Molded from high compression zinc die-cast housing, and properly sealed to prevent escape of nasty fuel vapors. Made by Wolfsburg West.”
Part number: 113919049C. This fits from ’62 to ’67.
Thanks guys for your dedication to this great hobby.
