65 Monza Convertible (110/PG). Fuel gauge quit working (went to "E"), Went through all the trouble shooting including "EGAD" (replaced the gauge in the dash) Still empty. So, I ordered up Clarks new all stainless steel sending unit. Emptied the tank and pulled the sender. BTW I checked the old sender and it still worked fine...The float was full of fuel! Anyway, I replaced with the new sending unit from Clarks. Now, my gas gauge works...sort of. Unless it's completely full, or the car is perfectly still for a period of time, the gauge bounces around constantly. it doesn't show completely "F" even when I fill till having gas run out the filler neck, and the lowest reading I get is about 1/4 even though the tank is probably down to 2 gallons. Do I have two problems here? (calibration and ???)
