"Other than the weights, is there any difference between the coupe and
convertible bumpers?"

Yes, several differences.

Does the 76 have the low fuel light?  The later models (with which I am familiar) have three terminals on the fuel sender.  One is ground, one is for the gauge and the third is for the low fuel light.  If you swap the gauge and the low fuel light wires it will work backwards - except that the fuel gauge will give two readings, Empty and Full, nothing in between.

Wedge List / fuel gauge problem
« Last post by "Allen Brenden" on June 16, 2017, 04:50:20 PM »
Hi all,



I have a '76 TR7 that has a fuel gauge problem. A little history. I had a

problem with losing gas to the carbs last year. Had to have it flatbedded

home. It did fine but it ran out of gas to the carbs going uphill. I thought

it might be crap in the tank. Today I pulled the fuel level sender and

checked the tank. Couldn't see anything. The screen was clean and no

restriction there. Put the sender back in and the gauge showed a full tank.

Hmm. Pulled the sender and checked it out of the tank and it worked

backwards. With the float down it showed full tank. Raising the float caused

the gauge to fall. I see nothing in the wiring diagram to explain this. The

ground is good at the sender.



It's got me baffled. Can anyone help?

I think they are since long gone.

Thanks Odd, I didn't think I was dreaming, TR-IG I think they are

called, I wonder if the mounts are still available?  Could be helpful.

Mark,

Where are you located? I have 2 coupe front bumpers in pretty good shape.

I'm in Lynnwood, WA just north of Seattle.

Thank you Todd!



I found and cleaned that ground connection near the passenger-side trunk hinge

and my fuel gauge - fingers crossed - is working.

It was the German TR7 Club - and yes they were an easy fit.

i can't remember who but a few years ago someone was manufacturing solid

mounts to replace the rubber ones, I think made from Aluminium, anyone

remember who it was?  I believe it's an easy fit.
