Hi there,

Are you referring to a carby fuel float or the fuel tank sender fuel float?

91 Corolla's are FI, no carbs. There is a float for fuel gauge in tank, you have to remove tank to get to it.

Find a replacement before you do.

You will have to remove thew fuel tank to access the sender unit, you will have to remove thew screws and with draw the sender/fuel pump assembly from the tank.

One wire is a ground (earth) the other is the sender wire to gauge.
If you ground the sender wire, gauge should go to empty, or close to it.
The sender sends a resistance number in ohms to the gauge, for example 0 ohms would be empty, 90 ohms would be full.

The problem would be finding a replacement, if Toyota has one, it is most likely not cheap.
