Default 35 deluxe fuel gauge alternative

Anyone found an alternative to the hydrostatic fuel gauge that would fit and look ok in a 35deluxe sedan? My hydrostatic gauge is trashed and cant seem to locate a replacement. Looking for maybe an electric like the 36 that could more or less be bolt-on.

Give them a call in Monday, they might have a NOS original, otherwise they have a 29-31 but it might not work

I put a 36 gauge in my 35 sedan, I had to use some self taping screws to bolt the sending unit in place. I donít remember for sure but I think I had to make the access hole larger and built a new cover but I donít think I had to enlarge the hole in the tank

My 35 needed a new tank so it has a 36 style tank with a modern sender, with an original 36 gauge. The modern sender isn't fully compatible with the gauge, but I have it calibrated to be correct at Empty ( the important end!). When the tank is full, the needle disappears up the top - when it comes back into sight, it's time to fill up.

Do you have the dual Oil/Fuel or single fuel gauge in your dash? Either way the 36 electric gauge will work but you will need to replace the sender in the tank. The 36 dual Oil/Fuel is getting harder to find and very pricey.They do show up on EBAY tho.
