    Could it be that it is just a leak in the top that have caused the light to be permanently on? Maybe it would be enough just make a new solder in the top end?

    Or is it more likely that it is the reed contact that is the problem?

    Unlikely, usually reed switch is damaged, fragile to careless handling of cabling and pulling insufficiently glued wire reed contact is damaged. I suggest to replace the wires, are old and hard.

    Well I tried, but alas it was no good. I will just have to use the mileometer to judge my fuel level, unless a second hand one appears on ebay. At least I now understand how it works, thanks to you guy's. Thanks again for all the info.

    Did you get some good pictures or did you write down how much ampere the reed contact is, or anything else that might help med when I will give it a try?

    No,to get the brass tube out you risk damaging it because it's so well glued in at the base.You will have to get the brass tube out at the base to be able to get at the reed switch. If you get this far, and do get the reed switch out, you will then be able to replace the switch. It must be very tiny as the inside diameter of the brass tube is only about 2mm. Hardly worth the effort, that was my opinion at the end.

    Just to confirm that this worked nicely, sorry i did not take note of how many ampare the switch was, however it was the only one that looked near fitting, the glass bulb is about 11 mm long and 2 mm wide.
