Does anyone know the ohms range for a 57 Dodge tank sender. I was going to get a new one and they have 10-75 and 15-100. The sixties cars are 10-75 I'm pretty sure. So I would assume 57's also? I think 15-100 works for newer aftermarket gauges. Thanks

Measure the response on your gauge, but all the '57-'58 Chrysler, DeSoto, Dodge & Plymouth that I have dealt with used 215 ohm senders. There are multiple versions of these for some reason and most have the wrong range.

Thanks for the information, I did a search on that topic and couldn't find anything on it. Does anyone know a place that sells the correct tank sender unit? Thanks for the reply.

Thank you for the Ohm numbers. I can't find any on the market that are that high they are all 15-100. I tried an old 100 ohm sender on the gauge wire and it gets to about a 1/2 tank so I know your numbers are correct. I am sure some of our members have put in new senders so does anybody remember where they got them?

I think there might be one on eBay ... for $ 275.00   (a 2 minuite search

There might be more but I'm working at being a Millennial so I'm waiting for someone else to do it for me.

I saw that, $275 is too rich for my budget. There are some real scalpers on ebay. I did end up "bleeding" for one on there for $150. Vans Auto said they used to have them but can't get them anymore. I would think some specialty retailer would fabricate some. The market has several types that are 10-75 or 15 - 100 that they claim are for 57-59 Dodge and Plymouth. Its strange they haven't been called out on them. When I called them they say they have never had a problem with them.
