    Ok, so, how do I tell what sending unit to order for the front tank on a 1984 f250 6.9idi? Several are on the web...some with a pump, some without, some for a 17 gallon tank, some for a 19 gallon tank... Do I remove the old one and go from there, or is there a way to tell either from the door sticker, or VIN number. Would love to be able to order the correct item, and do the swap in a couple of hours instead of taking things apart, ordering, waiting, then putting it all back together..Thx for the replies...

    With pump will be a gasser. You may need to pull yours for comparison. Check your VIN for build date. If late '84, 85' should fit.

    Go to Gas tank depot. Look up your truck. I just did my front and rear sending units on my '87 6.9. They have shower heads too. Easiest to pull the body I think. Still a pain in the ass, but dropping the tank is worse IMO.
