Same here. Those are some pretty deep and big divots. I have seen the black junk before and that isn't what yours looks like. Looks like corrosion from salt water.

What if there is not such a thing ? If I was having a problem I would want to make sure I had the correct sending unit. You would have already had it by now if you ordered it from CP.
