Default Fuel sending unit impedance

What are the true ohms rating for the stock sending unit on a M715 ??

I know that GM fuel gauges read 1 ohm @ Empty, 44 ohms @ Mid point, 88 ohms @ Full. What about the stock one ??

Thanks

The stock military fuel sending unit are not the same as any civilian ones.

Empty 30 ohms

Full 0 ohms

This is OPPOSITE of the GM car senders used up to 1965 or so...

If you were to use the older GM car sender, it would read full at empty and empty at full...
