  • Anybody got a few of these?

    I need a few of these if anyone has some laying around. Several of our cars are missing them.



    Anybody got some?

        I dunno. Never seen one still on the car. [)]

        I need some metal ones too for early Hawks. Those still available new?

          If they are the same as the brake master cylinder covers, then yes. I don't remember where I bought one, but I know that I have in the past.

            Yes, the fuel sending unit cover is a circle of heavy tar paper, at least it is on the 61 Lark model. Maybe that is why it's so rare to find an original fuel sending unit cover specimen.

              There's two included as a premium in every Campbell's soup can.

              I don't believe there are holes provided for the anchor clips like they used on the master cylinder cover. The sending unit cover was, I'm pretty sure, just tarred fiber.

              You could very easily make a better cover than what the factory used. Unless you are aiming to build a 400 point car, use what works for you.

                Don't know about later cars but for my '53, the sender hole was the same as the underfloor master cylinder fill hole AND the one on the tranny tunnel that is for the DG automatic fill. My car was originally a 3spd/OD so there was a steel cover tarred in place on the trans tunnel. Rooting through boneyards I found another one for the sender hole in the trunk. I replaced the floors in my car and converted to firewall master for the brakes and never cut the hole for the under floor one... Both the master and sender covers were missing when I got the car.

                    Is the floor panel stick welded, flux core MIG, or ???

                        They are a round metal cover.

                        I think I have one on my 63 Lark parts car. It is at a friend's house. He is having a Christmas party Saturday, and I am going. I will look to see if it is still there. If it is, I will send it to you free.

                          You can make one in about 10 minutes from 16-20 gauge sheet stock.

                            Cut two circles of 30# felt and pound them together. Voila! NOS part.

                            When I saw the pic I thought you were looking for holes.....
