Make sure the sending unit is grounded and the fuel gauge is grounded. Use a ohm meter and hook it to the sending unit with the fuel gauge disconnected. When you move the sending unit up and down, the needle should move with the sending unit. I don't remember how to check the gauge, but it sounds like a ground problem to me. It is either an open ground or a dead short.

Disconnect the wire at the sending unit, the gauge should read empty,if it doesn't the gauge is bad or the wire is grounded out somewhere. Then touch the wire to a good ground, the gauge should go to full. If it reads empty with the wire disconnected and full when you ground the wire then the problem would be in the sending unit.
