Default Re: Adjusting Fuel Level in King Seeley Gauge

I found that if the capillary tube is disconnected from the gauge that the previous gauge level I had at half full (1/4 mark) could not be regained by rocking the car to agitate the fuel in the tank. It made no difference at all. Probably the only way in the garage would be to remove the fuel line and blow into it to get some bubbles under and into the tank unit “bell”.

Next step will be to see how my cleaned gauge works on the road and whether I need more calibration wire or pull the tank unit and check it out. I believe it was crack free when I put it in two years ago with limited road miles since then.

Attached is a pressure head calculation I did for the tank and the gauge.
