Re: 1966 Olds Toronado Fuel Tank Sending Unit

Hey Otto, I tried the two websites. Unfortunately I no longer have the original sending unit. I'm not sure if the car had it to begin with or something happened to it along being towed to different shops.\ I bought a sending unit to a '67 Cadillac Eldorado, but they said that it doesn't fit. I'm try...

1966 Olds Toronado Fuel Tank Sending Unit

Need a whole complete and fitting sending unit for a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado. Mechanic is not helping me research or find anything and I do not know the correct specifications.

This is the last part I need before the car runs. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Re: Removing Old Gasoline Part II

Can one of you post the back-end underbelly of your car? I need to figure out how to lower the two straps that hold the tank up but I can't find any photos or help online in doing so. The two straps are held up by some bolts or large pins of some kind but mine are covered in baked-on road grime or f...

Re: Removing Old Gasoline Part II

I have added almost 10 gallons of fresh gasoline to it prior to all of this and the gas tank meter reads in the middle as it always has, continued to try to start the engine past it just turning over and nothing. The fuel lines will need to be replaced anyways since I cut them and need to get new m...

Re: Removing Old Gasoline Part II

Are you able to siphon the remaining fuel out of the tank through the filler tube behind the license plate? No, inside that filler tube is an anti-siphoning device, much to my dismay.
