Can someone else measure there "fuel sender" resistance for me please?

I'm calling it the "sender" because thats what the manual calls it. Its actually the float inside the tank. To me the "sender" is the fuel pump. I don't know why they call it that...anyways...

If I unplug the "sender" (the plug is under the seat in front of the seat latch, white 2 wire plug) hook the NEG probe to the black wire and POS to the green wire, its reading the proper 140 Ohms when empty but if I measure the light green wire at the dash it reads 129 Ohms. This doesn't make sense to me. It should be the same.

I'm asking because I replaced my gauges with an after market one and no longer have a fuel gauge or light. I'm building a low fuel light circuit and maybe a new fuel gauge too.

Any electrical engineers in the house wanna chime in here, that would be awesome!

Its a basic voltage comparator circuit that I'm building. I may end up just tapping into the sender plug and go from there.

Thanks guys!
