Depends on whether your fuel line that connects to the sending unit is still a steel line with fitting or whether it has been changed to a rubber hose.

If the conversion to 12 V was not done right, the gauge is fried.   The gas gauge does not like 12V and on a Buick the + or Ign terminal on the fuel gauge is used as a junction block
