fuel guage resistor???

my 79 fuel guage reads inaccurately...a long time ago,(probably 12 yrs)before i actually owned the car, i got a new cluster printed circuit for the car for a friend, and he installed it...the gas guage hasnt worked right since...there is a resistor on the back of the guage between the pos and sensor wire terminals, and its broken...does anyonoe know what the resistance is???does the tank size change the resistor value???can i use a resistor from any chev of that vintage, or go to radio shack and get a resistor of that value???i`m planning to drive the car a lot more this yr, since the addition of the od, and really would like to know if i`ve got fuel...any help would be appreciated...
