WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm -


This sender appears to be designed to work as a top mount, not a side mount. The float arm can be bent to work with a side mount, however it doesnt work well this way. The mount leaked I dont actually see any way it wouldnt leak based on design. I dont recommend this sender for a side mount where the fuel would ever reach the mount point.
