is there a difference between statesman and 1 tonners fuel senders? (HZ)

hi guys is there a difference between statesman and 1 tonners fuel senders?
I know there is between the HQ's thermal and magnetic also utes panel vans and tonner there is a difference.
my sender was working fine when I got my little beast but it was leaking where the fuel gauge wire plugs into the wire.
so a mate gave me one but the fuel gauge wasn't working anymore.
so I got a new one from rare spears but the same thing.
if there is a difference between them can someone tell me what the ohms are for a statesmen.
oh ye my hz tonner has a statesmen dash in her
many thanks for everyone's help on this project as this is the 1st old car and aussie car I have owned.
somehow you converted me lol
cheers tom

Short the Sender Wire to ground at the Chassis and see what the Gauge reads.

If it reads Full, then there is a Sender problem. It may have lost its Ground.

Try grounding the Centre of the Sender and seeing it it works then. The Rubber Ring may be preventing it from contacting Ground properly.

thanks mate I had a go tonight and tested the new one, old one and one 2nd hand one a mate gave me. all 3 worked with the wire on the outside of the sender.
I gave the take a clean where the sender goes into and still had the same old problem.
touched the side of the sender with a earth wire and all 3 worked.
now I know hot to fix it can I just solder a wire to the sender (off and out of the tank)
and earth it? will this pass roadworthy?
cheers shed ur really a life saver mate....really you are!

Others have post up that sometimes the Fuel Tank isn't earthed properly (paint making insulation problem maybe).
