You can't really see it. It is in the fuel tank, which should be under your rear seat under the car.

It is basically three steel lines bend like an 'L' that go inside the tank and have a potentiometer and a float on it. The fuel pump is attached to it.

If you look under the car just inside the passenger rear wheel... look WAAAYYY high, you will see three (probably rusty) lines with nylon fuel lines attached. THAT is the beginning of your sending unit. It costs about $150-$170 bucks... and we recommend you replace the fuel pump ($120) at the same time.

I'm just finishing my replacement, so I've passed the Bonneville Club Tank Droppers Union initiation.

You can get a picture of the sending unit by going to www.rockauto.com and looking up your part.
