Yeah, that sux for sure. As I am in the same boat. My sending unit is grounded and shows full all the time. Do what I did and buy one from a wrecked truck off of here, or find a junkyard near home and you can buy them for about a hundred bux.

V10 trucks fuel pumps and sending units are built in together, won't work. You have to have one from a diesel truck only

Not sure. Don't really see what could be holding it up. You can hit the side of the tank with a robert mallet and see if it loosens it up or something
