Hi all,
Got an EL with a sender issue. It's inaccurate and erratic, beyond the usual expected variations. Tried a polish, rebending the contact arm. No luck.
I read on an old post http://www.fordforums.com.au/showpost.php?s=31cd5f6162b5a413e1cd8cc614ca64d1&p=3833590&postcount=6
that the PCB is cross-compatible with similar vintage Commodores..

I'm wondering if they're also the same ED-EF-EF-AU-BA.
Can anyone share their knowledge on compatibility with other Falcons and makes/models?

BTW it seems there's a documented issue with E10/E85 corrosion of senders, both of solder and the carbon resistance track.. still, I'll keep using E10 cause I love the timing I can run :)

cheers

EB/ED/EF/EL sedan are interchagable. Sedan is not interchangable with wagon. Not sure on AU unit. BA/BF is different.
