Yamae,

Thank you! I sort of vaguely remembered from my physics experiments back in my school years that heat destroyed a magnets properties, but never knew the effect had a name!! It's good to...

OK chaps,

I think I've found out how this oil level sender works, thanks to the link from Yamae, and a little experimentation. The float has a collar or bushing which is highly magnetised at the...

Yamae,

thanks for the link. I checked it out and was not able to find out too much. There appear to be several different sensor types, and the only thing I can come up with is that there is some...
