Fuel Gauge problems

761 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  tedixon
In my 68 chevelle, the fuel gauge does not seem to work. I've searched this board and tried every suggestion. If I disconnect the tan wire it will go to the full mark. If I uplug the fischer plug above the fuse box and ground the tan wire on the dash side, it only drops to about 3/4 tank. Does this mean the gauge is bad?
Any suggestions on where to get a new gauge? Can I use an after market gauge and put it in one of the multi gauge clusters?

All I can add is to check the black ground wire from the tank to the underside of the car for a good connection. Also check the wire that plugs into the sending unit on the tank. Sorry, wish I could be more of a help.
