I don"t know about 1953 but on my 1958 F600 if I remove the wire to the sending unit and connect it directly to ground (12V Neg ground electrical system) the gauge goes to Full.

I believe the float arm is attached to a variable resistor. If you take it out and check it with your ohm meter you may find the problem area on the resistor. You may not be able to fix it but it will be educational.

OK thanks - the gauge goes up and down randomly even when at rest so the fuel is not sloshing around - thankfully it looks like a pretty simple job to remove and, for once easy access through a top plate you lift up.

Have to double check I have the battery disconnected before I mess with that!!!!
