I think you meant a 5/16" on the C7, not 15/16" as that is almost an inch.

NOS are still around.  I got one a while back on ebay.  They are generally in the $200-$250 range.  Please report back on how the Scott Drake one works, once you run it for a while.  My car has a repro in it and isn't very accurate, only goes up to about 5/8 full.  I haven't had a chance to install the NOS one yet.  I hate using gas as deodorant!!
NOS 68  3/8 senders are still around and sell for $200.-$250 range but not the C7 5/16 outlet. Those are extremely hard to find NOS and if you find one for less then 400.00 you got a deal.
I did .Thank you for the catch. I will amend my mistake.

Yes.  I was trying to interject a bit of humor while pointing out the typo.  All good.

    As always, thanks for your help! I remember 15-20 years
ago finding it easier to remove the tank and having to remove
the tail light panel for easier access, just wasn't trusting my memory    :P

I remember now, the last time I did this I was having fuel delivery problems,
car would stall, be hard to restart. I discovered that the fuel sock on a repop fuel
sender had fallen off. I removed the tank to inspect it (was clean, in good shape)
and removed the fuel sock from the tank  :-)
