If I pull the wire from the sending unit it goes to full

Exactly what mine was doing and the issue was a sunk float (if new one has 
a hole it won't take long). Other possibility is a short to ground in the 
sender itself or via a broken insulator (would expect a gas seep in that case).

In any event the sender is going to have to come back out which also means 
a new ring and retainer.

Checking with a DVM, a LM should read 90 ohms with the arm all the way up 
(F) and close to zero with it all the  way down (E).
