My guess is the float or sending unit. i don't get why auto parts don't have it...thats stupid. but that's my two cents, it happened to my brothers 1985 f350 (and his 93 f350 lol) but good luck with your truck and much respect!

ok.i will venture a guess on why there is no sending unit listed for your truck. i work for one of the above mentioned companies. i went to our site and looked it up. im thinking maybe its not on there because your truck is carbed not FI. BUT you are still ok. you use the sending unit from an f250 with a 460. both have the same tanks and are carbed. everything will bolt right up.
