Fuel Gauge reading Empty.
I checked out a fuel tank transmitter the other day.
Under an inspection panel, a single screw terminal connects a wire to
the guage from a rheostat hooked to a float. I clipped a test lead on
the transmitter terminal, and grounded the other end. The gauge read
FULL (as it should)
So the gauge was OK.
So I was all fired up to find another transmitter ($$$) when I ran into
He said, check the transmitter grounding first.
It took me a little while to see the value of the suggestion.
Then I realized: when a transmitter reads short, meaning tank full,
the indication can fail if the short isn't produced in the transmitter
OR the short doesn't get from the transmitter body, to the airframe.
