I had my original sending unit replaced about 3 years ago because I had needle bounce when driving.  Everything was fine, at least I thought, until today.  I decided to drive my truck around today running as much of the gas out currently in the tank out without running out.  I started at 1/2 tank and when I filled it after running around and doing errands ( a total of about 50 miles) the needle was registering at just about 1/8th tank.  Went to "fill" my tank and I only had to put 8 1/2 gallons in.  I know this is a 15 gallon tank.   So if the guage registered 1/8th above empty, shouldn't I have had to put at least 12-13 gallons in my tank before it registered full?  Because of how low the gas fill inlet is, I always get some splash back.  I was manually holding the trigger and it splashed back.  I waited about 15 seconds until things settled and then started pumping again at low volume and again got splash back.  I do not!!!!  want to take this someplace again and have the tank dropped again.  This would explain how I can drive 20 miles and burn over 1/4 tank gas.  The gauge is not registering.  Is there anyway to calibrate the gas gauge?

Is this why this board is so light in terms of progress on projects?

I'm not making a political statement, just an observation...

With just "fuel prices" +65% I'm just guessing that it's cutting into what is generally disposable income to further our projects.

Again, not that I'm unaffected, just curious...

Notice my turn signal indicator in the cab stopped working on the left side.

I looked and the front blinker/parking light wasn't working. Parking light worked.

Naturally bought new bulbs but that did not fix the problem.

Noticed the side marker would blink out of phase with the front bulb (Right side)

When the left side blinker/parking bulb was removed, the side marker would blink strongly, and the turn indicator on the dash would follow.

With the front bulb installed it would not, noticed that the side marker dimmed and would not blink.

Cleaned the ground in the light fixture, DeOxit all connections, no difference.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum but I had a question, I have a 1976 chevy k20 and I'm wanting to put some new ball joints and wheel bearings in the front axle, to my knowledge they didn't put 10b's in these trucks till 1977.5? Just trying to figure out what parts I need because napa can't figure out if the parts are for a 10b or a Dana 44... thanks! P.S. I was told the truck was rebuilt a while ago and I'm sure they swapped axles around...
