IMO, wrong or defective sending unit. Or bent sending unit float holder...

Re: gas guage

possibly a partially bad ground, the sender ground wire screws to the body just in front of the tank, toward the right side.

Re: gas guage

very possibly. A bad dash ground could affect the gas guage too. Did you pull the dash out when you changed the bulbs?
