I don't know for sure on this car, but most sending units are in the gas tank.

Pretty sure they need a new/used replacement, not locating it on the car.

Anyone know were to find a fuel level sender unit I can't find one anywhere 

 

Are you sure the sender is bad, and not just the wires? Mine had a wire go bad where it goes though the tank. I stripped it all down, used some new fuel safe wires and epoxy to reseal it.

No I pulled it out and inspected it it's coveted in rust and is froze up completely

Have you tried to free up the moving parts then clean up the contact tracks? If you manage to do this it’s an easy check to see if it will work before reinstalling ;)

I have done some research on this and it seems the part number 85111GA153 has been discontinued across the board for basically all 1994 leones and older with the analog gauges.

 

My question (not to steal this thread) is can we adapt a universal fuel sending unit to our tanks? Has anyone used a different make and model part as a replacement?

I have a flushed / cleaned  tank from an '89 wagon.  sender/float is clean.  Research seems to be that it fits '87 to '89 only.  Any reason why this same setup wasn't used in the "carry-over" '90 - '94 Loyale Wagon models?

Well I will let you know. Because I just ordered a fuel tank from a 1991 loyale for my 87 RX. So I am going to swap the sending unit at the least. I already swapped in the tach unit and it worked just fine with my 87 sending unit.

 

To clarify my 87 sending unit only works intermittently. But the gauge read full when fully lift and empty when fully lowered. But I will find out if the 91 sending unit fits in a 87 tank

Just an update - The gas tank I ordered out of a 91 loyale seems to be an exact (or exact enough) replacement to my 87 gas tank and the fuel sending unit looks identical.

Also, I had to replace the cluster in mine because the fault was actually the gas gauge itself, and not the sending unit. Hope that helps someone out there.
