64 corvette fuel level wiring

if someone can please help me i have a 64 corvette that i have instaled a auto meter gas gage in. it has the stock sender in it also. i am using a painless wiring harness and can not get the fuel system to read right. the problem the vette sending unit has 3 terminials on it one has a s ( i would think this is the sending terminal) one has a i ( dont know why) and one i guess would be the ground. i have wasted over 30 hr on this trying to wirer it different ways, if some one could help i would be gratfull. thanks

Doc here,

Are you talking about the TANK sending unit , or the DASH gauge?

On the DASH gauge:

S=SENDER

I=12 VOLTS SWITCHED

G=GROUND

I is NEVER used in a sender..you DO NOT want 12 volts immersed in 30 gallons of gasoline..

The Sender should be, Hard Ground, and Sender wire to the gauge.

Doc

Doc here,

HARD ground..

Battery Neg to frame to device...

Or battery to device ground.

Things like a ground wire on a strip of metal under the dash are questionable as to bonding a good ground.
