Default Fuel sending unit, replaceable?

my gas gauge doesn't work and I believe it is the fuel sending unit.
is that part replaceable?
I've seen where people can "mod" it to work but I dont have the tools to do that.
so what all is involved in replacing the unit?
should I have a mechanic do it?
I do know how to work on cars so I prob could do the job.

I have seen that you can replace the fuel level sending unit. Mine does the same as yours, so use the tripmeter and a feather throttle.lol I know if i change mine, the fuel pump will probably crap the bed. A pro mech. told me that sometimes just do the pump itself, seeing that the level unit is part of it. No sense doing/ paying for the same job twice. pls keep us posted for when the rest of us decide to do this replacement

I was thinking it would be easier to do the whole pump but cost is an issue sometimes. the pump is around $100.00 I think, while the unit is around $30.00.
what is a feather throttle?
