I used a 240z sending unit that I shortened. Worked great!

Was it for a Goon or 240z? Any mods to it?

Was wagon specific. Looks like the price went up now.
Do you not have one? What is wrong with it if you do?

I see one on the bay but they want 160 something for it. I'll try to se what other options I can come up with. Mine is a bit rusty so I'll try to clean it and see what happens.

I've thought the same. The basic senders are likely all the same. Getting these tested / certified for safety must be horrendously expensive so best to use one for all models and many years. This would indicate that the gauges are also similar. I've used a 720 gas tank in my 620 and the 620 gauge read perfectly. Only the float and arm length needs to be different to work in different models. Some mount in the top pf the tank some on the side.

I just got one for my 521 off eBay, and basically what mike said.... what I got wasn't even the same as the pic....
Minor bend to the lever and I should good, but I swear what I received looks closer to what you have than what I thought I bought.... I'll take a pic and measurement later maybe it will help...

Not quite right...

20170607_152354_zpsfhpsegu7.jpg
And I measured the swing from full to empty and that's about 7inches....

Close up of stop locations...
