Cool gas gauge always reads full

Hi guys
it not a camaro but.... 70 nova with 38k org miles gas gauge reads full all the time....
I have checked it has power to sending unit and cleaned the ground but no joy.... should I drop the tank and see what the sending unit reads with a ohm meter???? I know that at full it shpould be 90 ohms but what about when empty?
Thanks for any help

Re: gas gauge always reads full

at empty, it should be close to zero ohms. If it's reading way past full, could be a bad ground or open sender. If it's at full, the sender float's probably stuck.

You can ground the sender wire to make sure the gauge is working properly, go here
