Years Owned: My first Toronado was a 1968 W-34 with the bucket seats and center console... (weeps gently) It was a New England rustbucket in 1982 after less than 14 years. So sad. But it is what infected me and before I knew it I had another '68, a '69, a '70 and eventually inherited a friend's '67 and another friends '73. After buying my brand new Grand Prix in 1988 I retired the last of my Toronados and pulled the 455 I had rebuilt along the way and put it into storage in a friend's barn where it is to this day.
In Mid September of 2010 I happened to see a repeat of the show where Jay Leno did his 66 Toronado and had an instant remission of the disease which resulted in my purchase of a 1969 in very good condition. I am now in the process of fully rehabilitating it and hope to have it on the road in the spring of 2011.

I had my fuel sending unit rebuilt by these folks for less than $150:

The unit came back in excellent working order and for less than I could find anywhere else.

Am I to take it you used the folks I recommended above? If not, please let us know where you did send it.

Gecko, that's a spam bot. They post a line or two from previous posts. In this case, yours.

By the way everybody, this company no longer rebuilds sending units but does offer products that restorers might need.

Their sending unit guy has started his own company. Here's the email I got from them.

Unfortunately, we do not do this service any more. However, the technician that rebuilt these for us bought out the fuel sending unit business from SUR&R. He is still doing these and would welcome your call. You can get in touch with him at (330)-813-0117 and his name is Andy.

Thank you,

Matt
