ford 3000 fuel gauge

rex hart my ford 3000 fuel gauge does not work.any suggestions?
AJ Fuse,loose connections on sender unit in the tank or the gauge it self,basically how a fuel gauge works is,when you switch on, power is sent to one side of the gauge,the earth is made through a resistor on the sender unit in the fuel tank,to test the gauge take off the wire from the sender unit and ground it,switch on,the gauge should read full if its ok,if it does not move it points to a faulty gauge,no power going to the gauge or the wire from the sender unit to the gauge broke,if it reads full test the sender unit,get a small test lamp,very low wattage bulb,connect one end to power and the other to the terminal on the sender unit it should light,if your sender unit has two connections on it one goes back to the gauge the other is earth,make sure the earth one is making good contact.
Good Luck
AJ
