Does anyone have some pictures of the 88 TC fuel sending unit. I’m curious about the plug connection and location of the float. Thanks!

Here is mine, missing the float.  The float pictured is from Summit Racing.

Thank you ABird! So my next question is that the fuel pump sits off a separate hangar correct? Does the fuel pump hangar also have a two prone connector? Thank you again

Yes, separate hanger and 2 prong connector, pictures attached of pump and tank.

Thank you again ABird; these pictures have been more than helpful. What is the hole in the tank between the fuel sender and pump hangar?

Thank you; I do know that but there is a third small hole in between these two. I'm guessing it's some sort of vent? Also, I received my new gas tank yesterday and when looking on the inside of the tank there appears to be a bowl on the bottom below the hole for the pump hangar. I'm guessing this is some kind of baffle that the pump/sock combo sits inside? Can anyone confirm this? Thanks!

Correct about the "bowl" baffle...... it is there to keep fuel at the pump when cornering / braking / accelerating hard.

The fuel tank vent valve is the small hole in the middle.  I was able to order one for my new tank.  Here is the part number, E7DZ-9B593-A.  I also replaced the gas tank breather valve seal, fuel tank straps, fuel filler neck seal, fuel filter and fuel line clips.  The new tank came with the lock rings and O rings.
