Hi Dave ...did you cut the float arm and re bend it so it gives full scale defection of the potentiometer/resistor? if you have not that is what will be the cause, take the fuel sender out and offer it up to the outline of the tank (use a bit of masking tape on the rear tub including the sump where the sock sits) you will then be able to see the deflection available ....if I remember rightly I think you need to cut the 2nd bend from the end of the wire then rebend it to put the float back in its original position albeit a little shorter which will allow it FSD on the pot.
