    Hi All,
    I have added a new fuel gauge which is not OEM to the instrument cluster on my '55 Chev. I would very much like to use the original sender with the new fuel gauge if possible. The new gauge would like to see 0 to 90 ohms resistance (0=empty, 90=full); the original sender is 0 to 35 ohms (0=empty, 35=full). I have a beginner skill level, but I can use a meter and a soldering iron. Any help with a circuit would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ron​
