Totally used to those. My father put one in a 1962 vehicle. Half in the dash, half in the trunk.Yes. But that was 9 years later. In 59 they were still using "Vibrator Tubes" in car radios.
I also built a transistor replacement for a vibrator "tube" way back when..........................
and later I built a solid state vibrator replacement external to the radio.
OK, if this information was in the first post I missed it. Thought you were working for a company making the senders. Most cars of that era already have a voltage regulator in the housing of the gauge, to lower the chance of sparking in the tank.I don't disagree - but, this is for a 1959 Plymouth!
What does the load the sender sees look like?The circuit doesn't need to be anywhere near the gas tank, it could be under the dash, and powered by 12 volts. It just has to present 20 ohms to the gauge when the rheostat is at 10, and 225 ohms when the rheostat is at 125. I have no plans to touch the tank, or the sending unit.
So, can I get a reply from someone who can answer the question?
