gas gauge reads full all the time

Working on a 1980 Volvo 265 GLE Wagon. First the gas gauge read totally empty. Now it reads totally full, regardless of actual fuel level. Do I need a new sending unit or is it possibly something else?

Gas gauges read by ohms from the sender - could be ground, could be corrosion, could be the sender.
