75 TA fuel gauge doesn't work

Recovered the dash and now reassembling.

The meter has the indictor to the far left. When the key is on, nothing happens. Also,
We don't have the instrument panel with tach and speedo connected yet.

The V connector has no voltage to ground after reinstalling.

What do I do to check things out?

Normally any gauge has to have 12v+ to one side marked with a + or i for ignition , and S which is for the sender and a circuit for the illumination of the gauge connected to interior light circuit. The easiest way to check back through the wiring for power loss is with a simple 12 v pen. Its sharp enough to probe the wiring. You can dab superglue where you puncture the insulation on the wire.
