Installation Instructions for 153xx Fuel Cells, Fuel Cell Mounts and Sending Unit

Gasoline vapors are highly flammable. It burns violently and can cause serious injuries. Don’t smoke near gasoline or when refueling. Keep sparks and flames away from gasoline. Open the fuel cell lid slowly and wait for the pressure to release before refueling. If you need a new fuel cell lid, get the right type, so it will fit properly. Fuel cell and all gasoline containers should be kept well ventilated. 

1. Mount the fuel cell according to the requirements of your racing classification or sanctioning body, secure properly to the floor frame or chassis to prevent shifting. Some requirements describe a size of mounting straps. 

2. Fuel cells should always have good solid floor support under the cell for the weight of the fuel. You must have support straps all around the cell. The top, bottom and sides must have the proper support. The tabs on aluminum cells are for locating only. 

3. Removal of any sharp metal edges from the area around the fuel cell is recommended to prevent penetration of the fuel cell upon impact. ALL FUEL CELLS MUST BE VENTED PROPERLY. 

If your cell has a Sending Unit, it is for a 0–90 OHM gauge.  0 ohms = EMPTY,   90 ohms = FULL 

Sending units work with most GM factory gauges with 0-90 OHMS. The center post wires directly to the gauge and you must ground the sending unit from one of the outside bolts of the sending unit to your frame. Always make sure your fuel cell is properly grounded and vented.
