one wire gas tank

I am assuming that my one wire, on my behind the seat gas tank, in my 69 chevy pick up is the one that hooks up to gage and the tank is grouded with the seven bolts that hold it in place. In any case I am going to check the sending unit and the wires. My gage also reads empty.I was almost certin that when I put gas in to break in engine it read the fill, about 1/4. Im wondering if it can work some of the time and not?

Using an Ohmmeter read the resistance between the single wire and ground.
Don't depend on the bolts for a ground. Connect direct to the sender body.
You should read anywhere from 0 ohms for an empty tank to 90 ohms for a full tank. If not replace the sender.
