hi
Had it rebuilt twice, installed the gage and it appeared to measures correctly. Now when cranked, the gas gage needle moves to "full" when there is only a half tank of gas in the car. When it was removed and tested, it appeared to function properly. However, When reinstalled it is not accurate.
It now has a Thermatic fuel gage unit.


I wonder if an electro magnetic fuel gage unit will fit a 56 station wagon?
Also, I was told earlier by someone that a sedan gas gage was not correct for a wagon.
any advice greatly appreciated.

Jerry: The 55-56 and probably other year fuel gauges and level senders are sedan and station wagon (suburban) specific. You need a 1622 622 for your suburban. See the part number list under the photo.

my problem may well be with the fuel sending unit in the gas tank. Maybe I should search for one? Anyone know the part # for a 56 suburban station wagon?

Jerry: I think that I'm going to have to start charging you for my parts finding "service". Where do I send my invoice?

In the meantime, you might want to learn how to find your own PNs and/or Search eBay. It will make your life easier (well, at least less reliant on others). If you find your part and were still unsure, you could post the PN you found and I (and others) would be happy to confirm that it is the correct part (or not) - hopefully before you buy said part.

How to find 55-58 Forward Look parts hints:

Using those "hints" just now, I found what you might need on eBay and then confirmed the PN shown in the auction using the parts pdf (see below)

Jerry: For my small part, you're more than welcome. Happy to help. I love the challenge of finding parts.

NOW, in payment, you need to post more photos of your obviously very nice 56 Plymouth Sport Suburban wagon
