885 Fuel Sender

How is the fuel tank sender unit accessed on the 885 with Q cab ? Is it a case of removing the fuel tank ?
Removing the tank looks a nightmare as the back of the engine is blocking the way. :?:

I'm not 100% sure, but I think the sender is on top of the tank, on the opposite side to the filler.

where the grab handles are in the cab in front of the dash is a hole if you lift the dash up and pull back the rubber in between the handles or the storage tray where we keep all the junk you will see the tank sender i have just checked on a 1210 and its in the same place as a 990 qcab narrow door

There is no access under the tray between the windscreen & dash board. Apart from butchering a hole in there, it must be a 'split the tractor' job ?

Hi, there is no need to butcher any holed or split the tractor to get to he sender, as people say you need to remove the dash board and there will be a (discreet) rubber bung approx 4" across. It needs to removed, possibly using Fairy liquid and a flat screwdriver and it will pull out to reveal the top of the tank and the fuel sender unit will be there. It is hard to tell that it is there, especially if the area is not in very clean condition, also it has probably hardened over the years. The rubber part has a unique shape that you will see when you remove it, and is almost hidden.

Unfortunately not all tractors had this access hole. DB either overlook access to the sender or thought they would go wrong :!:
