  5. The car is 6 volt Pos. The wire is not in any position to be pinched. Gage is hooked correctly. I rechecked the ohms. When the float is down it reads 12. When the float is raised the numbers decrease. I am not sure what the numbers should be, but they do not seem correct to me. I need to find what they should be. Thanks for all your help so far. Neil
  6. The tank has 10 gal. in it. When I can get the gauge to read outside the tank, it reads correct. Neil

  8. Hi auburnseeker, Thanks for your response. When I test it outside the tank I hold it as it would be in the tank. I can ground it to the tank or the trunk floor and it will work. If I install it in the tank it does not work even if I ground it to the same two places. The unit worked ok in the old tank. I do not want take it apart if I don"t need to. Neil
  9. I have a 55 Thunderbird 6 volt. I replaced the fuel tank and now the fuel gauge does not register. I have done all the tests and from the results it shows the problem is the sending unit. If I take the unit out of the tank and ground it. it will work. If I put it back in the tank It will not work even if I ground with a wire.?????????Thanks in advance.
