Thanks for hanging with me on this.
The sending Unit is such a simple item I don't see how they could ever go bad except if teh wire or striker broke. I have checked the resistance on the last three units and they read pretty much the same on Ohms.
When I ground the wire at the tank the gauge goes up, in a jumping manner, to full. Yesterday I put the SU in the tank and the gauge jumping, went up to empty. (Progress) Today I added five gallons and the gauge would only jump up to empty. I'm back to thinking the gauge isn't working properly. Next, I will re-check the wire from the tank to the battery ground then clean up the year of S--- I've accumulated behind the shop, pull the car out, take it down and fill it up. If the gauge works like it did out of the car, I'm going to put this to rest, until it starts bugging me, again.
