I always heard the wagon tanks are all the same from '71-'80 but the sending units were '71-'74, '75-'78 & '79-'80. I believe the only differences were in the angle of the fuel & vent lines but the senders all read the same 0-73 ohms. I've never swapped any but I really would like to know for sure.

 Going by the parts book
 '73 All - '74All - 75/76 2300 - 75/76 2800 - '77 up 2300 - '77 up 2800
 So it seems there are 6 different senders for the wagons.

That may be just due to minor changes in the fuel line & vent. The hole in the tank should all be the same size & the sending unit & plug should all be identical. I think Fred may be the only one who may have pics of each type
