The fuel guage in my 69 Camaro (in dash) was stuck on full, I pulled the tank and replaced the sending unit, checked the wire to the sending unit which is hot when I turn on the key, now is reads empty on the guage, when I disconnect the hot wire the guage go's to full, I checked the ground wire to the frame, seems ok, any suggestion.

Thanks, Jim Manfred

If your tank isn't really empty, I would guess that you have a short to ground somewhere....
