in tank fuel resistor card

Hi All,
I am looking for an in tank fuel resistor card suit Mk2 Escort 1980 with under boot floor fuel tank.
Also the seal located between the fuel sender and tank.
Must be new.
If anyone knows where they can be sourced please let me know.
Thank you for your help.  :)

    At this point I think the best option is having the sender card reconditioned. Plenty of instrument repairers out there that can take care of it for you.
     
    Seals aren't too hard to find, got my last one from a local bearing shop.

    Hi Drewdog,
    Thank you.:)
    Purchased several seals from a local seal supplier.
    Accidentally found a near new in tank resistor card in my spares as short term solution.
    Currently chasing the resistor wire. The instrument repairers want an arm and a leg and would mean posting the entire sender unit by Australia Post which I don't trust.
    :)

    Nice sleuth work Robbie, I can see the similarity in them and a doubt Ford would tool up for a totally new design when they can tax from another model... I bet the locking ring also fits too..

    Cheers for the heads up Robbie, certainly looks like a doable option. I can appreciate the out of the box thinking and work arounds with things getting hard to find nowadays.

    This looks very similar, and my guess is it's what rare spares uses. Our falcons were modeled from USA falcon/mustang so I reckon this could be it....I could also be wrong!!

    I have a custom alloy drop tank in the RS and modified an early Holden one. Just have to ensure the impedance is suitable for your gauge
