Default Fuel Level Sender

I need to replace my fuel level senders, but I cannot find the senders on the Van's website. Can anyone send a link?

Are the Stewart-Warner type senders available elsewhere?

Thanks, Pete
(Feeling a little stupid as they must be listed on the Webstore somewhere, but I can't find them).

I just bought a set from Vans. I am away, but if you are willing to wait a week I can get you the Stewart-Warner part numbers when I get back home.

I did a quick internet search, did not find them elsewhere cheaper. Felt good to support the mothership, they’re not gouging us on these

I would buy them from Cies Inc. better quality.

The promised accuracy was definitely appealing. However, numerous attempts to contact them for more information were met with crickets chirping...

I was interested in how they worked, but there's a dearth of technical information on these, aside from the original Patent (USPTO 6508119). I think there's an RV-10 with these, but it's not clear how many per tank are required, what the calibration/configuration of the arm might be for a RV tank...

Ah well...
