Still Here

Thanks for the reply. I have confirmed the sending unit is working and has a reading of 0 to 30 ohms. I have confirmed my old SW gauge is for 30 to 240 ohms or so. Therefore, I have purchased a new fuel gauge that is rated for 0 to 30 ohms. The problem is I still cannot get a reading on the new gauge. The hot to the gauge is confirmed and I confirmed the ground on the gauge by connecting the ground clip from a light tester to the ground on the gauge and it did light up when touched to the hot on the gauge. I assume that confirms it is grounded properly. Also, I have confirmed the gound on the sending unit is to the chassis and working in the same manner. I wired the sending wire (new wire outside the car) straight to the sending terminal on the gauge. What do you think I am missing here. Thanks so much for the help.
