On mine, I pulled it out and shook it to make sure the float was loose. It was stuck and had to pull the float out and sand it down a little to get it to move freely. If it is loose, hook the wires up and slowly turn it upside down and back to see if the gauge moves. There are a couple threads on this. In the side of the float there are a couple magnets that can come out also. There may be a better way to check, but this worked for me.

i would check on that again, normally they're an arm w/ a float and a variable resistance unit, or they're a float that mechanically spins a spiral shaft as it floats, then that's translated externally.
could be your float broke off?

My experience has been, whenever the sending unit starts to act up just replace it and be done with it. I had just replaced mine with a sending unit from Wema..
This sending unit is awesome, the best construction; all stainless steel. I think its better then OEM from mastercraft. Check it out, it ended all my false readings, but remember to check all connection to your guage because eventhough they are tight the connection could still be bad which will reflect in a false reading, (more resistance in a bad connection) Check the connections........my 2cents

Thanks for all the input. Got so frusturated with this thing, i desided to start fresh, and found out that when it got wired in by the orig. owner 5yrs. ago he got the wires crossed. NOW I GOT FULE!!!
Thanks again all.
