Yes, I did look carefully and the only info. I could find was 90 ohms printed on the rheostat.

Thanks Steve.
As Charlie Chan said Vely intelesting.

S-10 Blazers around here were famous for corroding off their ground connection to the sender/fuel pump via the rivet that carried all the grounds into the sending unit/pump assembly. That was so fun on cold nights when the fuel pump stopped working. I know of 3 Blazers that got access doors cut through the floor so grounds could be reconnected to the combination unit with a 300 watt soldering iron. Beat hell out of buying replacements and fighting to seal them into the corroded flange.
