Fuel senders

Hi all, would anyone know if the fuel tank senders on my phantom 50 are the resistive type or other?
Thanks

I think they had the float type sensor, ie 0 Ohms empty, 180 Ohms full.

If you can see the tank, check the top-if there is a black circular part with a 2 wire cable coming from it then it’s the float sensor, and sends the system a resistance reading as above. If there is a round yellow unit mounted low down on the tank side with a closeable valve between it and the tank then it is one of the later types which calculates tank level by monitoring the pressure.

Are you trying to recalibrate the level sender(s)?

In the years that Phantom 50 was produced, the factory changed from resistive to capacitive senders.
You have two wires in case of resistive and three in case of capacitive.
I believe that the last 30 Phantoms where build with capacitive senders.
The fuel sensor type used mostly on the 50 was WEMA S2-10/80
