    The 'upside down fuel gauge' was interesting, I have read about the problem on this forum before, clearly a change somewhere between 2002 and 2004, glad I spotted it and restored the previous tank unit !

    Yes the resistor is up the other way on the later units. It's easy to swap the parts over to correct the issue.

    The location of the coils doesn't help the longevity of them. They are being baked on top of the engine, with a cover over them, so they run very hot. This has a detrimental effect on the secondary windings, as the windings are so fine. Pencil coils also suffer similar issues, due to the same high temperature operating environment.
