 Is this on the inside of the spare tire cover by chance? Apparently, at some point, AMC was going to call the SX/4 an "Eagle GT" and not everything got changed.

1981 sales info http://amceaglesden.com/guide/1981 Doesn't meant a GT but could be a local dealership promo option.

Well I got an email back with a shipping quotation and payment authorization, so they had one at least in sock, plus they have replacement socks.
Thanks djm3452004!

Man; I've been lucky so far to never have seen one that bad!   Altho my 200K-mile waggie is probably close from all that bouncing around.   But its not acting up -- yet.....maybe I'll put in a bottle of 2-cycle oil to lube it up!!

What about American Parts Depot as suggested above?

I didn't see that edit until you pointed it out. Indeed there is nothing saying they are out of stock so I've placed an order and we'll see what they come back with.

I've had some luck rehab'ing OEM units simply by polishing up the coil windings (if there's not an open spot in the wire), and cleaning and bending in a bit more tension in the sliding contact.   May want to take a look at your old unit to see if its salvageable.
I did that two years ago when I replaced the entire tank just so I could fix a really annoying issue with it never going below 1/4 of a tank. I'm noticing that the winding isn't the wear point but the slider is. My junk one had completely worn down until it was a hook that snagged and wrecked itself and my working one was getting heavily worn but still useable after some adjusting. Now that it's doing dead shorts something really bad must of happened. Unfortunately I had just filled the tank two days earlier and don't have a garage so if I'm going to drop the tank in the winter I at least need to wait for it to empty out.

Called AMClives and they immediately bounced me over to Blaser Auto. Blaser says they are out of stock from their mexican OEM but will look into reordering and to call back in March. I'll call AMClives back to see if they have any loose units but it's not looking good. <:C

Called up Galvin as well and immediately it seems they too are out of stock but they will double check and call back later. In the meantime I've taken my spare sending unit through the sandblaster to prep it for the retrofit......
