I sure hope you don't have the sender with the float in it! Or you have another issue on top of it.
What I don't get is if it was released in 2013, why it still has the A and not an B at the end of the updated Version?

The short answer is no. I wrote a long answer, but the site froze, & it was lost. The sender can not be calibrated after the look up map is set.

Any idea what part number will I need for a 2004-2005 sending unit? I know it's not the same, but Will this upgraded newer one work on those years? TIA

FABSTER the part number is 75122-01 list for $301.46 Ouch

And No the newer sonic unit will not work on early years

You might try this fix first that the late Steppenwolf (RIP) had done.

https://www.1130cc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=106252

I had cleaned the strip a few times using the Harley Service Bulletin. Which calls for cleaning with a scotchbrite pad.

It worked great for about 2 tanks and started acting up again. It was better than before I started, but was never right.

I am planning on trying Steppinwolf's possible fix when I change my fuel filter next oil change

My '11 F's fuel gauge is all over the place and has been for a long time now, the fuel light going on a lot of the time is especially annoying..

Yeah but we both know your getting close to 200 miles on a tank

You'll have to get the new sonar tube like I did.

I just ordered mine from Kutter for $67, added it to an existing order I had so I get free shipping on it. That's not bad for a fix even though it should have been covered by a recall. I was just glad to find out the fuel flange unscrews on my F with screws and I don't have to make a lock ring tool. The times I removed it on my A ,I had the tank removed so I didn't need one, just a strap wrench.
PS my local dealer is selling them for $81.99 even though they show list price is only $77.55! I'm not sure how they can get away with selling parts for MORE than list price but that's the love they show us. I'm not feelin' it.

Do we need a gasket and screw kit though?

I'm not buying them. The manual says to replace the o-ring and the fuel filter also but it also says to use silicone gasket sealer on the o-ring so I'll just do that. The filter will get replaced if and when it needs it. It's up to you.
