I'm going to order a new sender today and fit it and see if that makes a difference, if not then it must be the foam and I'll cancel the trackday until I can change it.

Its interesting you all comment on the senders not lasting long, I built my car 19 years ago and thsi is the first issue I've had with it the sender

Agree entirely with post #11.  The sender gets a bad press because it's simply not very good at resisting engine vibration.  A remote mount works well, but a mech gauge is the best solution.

19k in 19 years ! Not run in yet. That's why no sender problems to date.
