Default Fuel Sender for a MF40B - or an alternate

My son has a MF40B industrial loader tractor that he uses to move logs around and load the processor with.
He is looking for a new fuel sender unit for it - and it seems that all his local parts experts are not able to find him the "correct" part. Their MF40B microfiche seem to be missing or the part is no longer available.

We got to talking and figure the purchasing department at MF back in the day was likely just as efficient aka lazy as the purchasing department in any big company, and there is a very good change the fuel sender for the MF40B is identical to the fuel sender for one or many of the other MF tractors of that era. (but with a different part number so the engineers won't realize)

Anyone able to point us in the general direction of a fuel sender that will work in a MF40B? He can cobble together a mount and connectors as needed. Just needs to work with the same resistance range etc.

He is also looking for a replacement rad cap and fuel cap. Both should be easy to match if he had the originals - but those mysteriously disappeared one night. Maybe they are rare or highly sought after????

I think you are right on the fuel sender, and if you can measure the resistance of the sender you can be sure of the right replacement. Or just use this one.
The fuel cap may be harder then the rad cap to find.

Eddy, try Lindsay used tractor parts.

It would be an hour/hour and a half run from your place, they may have everything you need, or none of it. I got stuff there a couple times and they seemed reasonable on pricing.

At least he will have a gauge that works. Out of eight things with fuel tanks, all but two use a stick to check the fuel. One good thing, the stick won't lie to you.

Why do I have to press one for English when you're just gonna transfer me to someone I can't understand anyway?

Grant me the strength to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can & the friends to post my bail when I finally snap!
