yup - it has a standoff attached and mounts with one screw. Tucks in nicely between the glove box and the lower end of the dash.

If it is the relay, they can be hard to find. I understand they used them on some other large body cars like the Monaco. I may have one but after our recent move I am unsure where it is.

Thanks to all who have responded, I did find the thing tucked up pretty high.  It's obvious that I'll have to take the glove box out to get to it.  Thanks for the Monaco idea--might be worth snooping around for one at the junk yard.

Depending on your plan (how "original" you want your car to be), you could adapt something out of a later model ford. Ford uses the same resistance readings for their fuel senders. I have a "low fuel relay" out of an escort that I am going to use, the basic wiring is almost exactly the same. This is from an 89 escort

let me know how that works out and have some instructions if you can. The ford thing sounds like a descent idea.
