Other than ohming out the wiring harness going to the guage, and then ohming out the connector on the float assembly, and looking for a change when you move the float up and down, then id say the sending unit is bad. I don't know what the float is supposed to ohm out at, but you should be seeing a big change in reading

well messing with it again today i got the gauge to work when moving the float around but as soon as its put back in the tank it goes back to reading full again...

also i just unplugged the terminals to see if maybe it will reset itself

Sounds like a connection problem, or a problem with the sender.....

Sounds like a nice problem to have haha but really have you checked the stepper motor behind the gauge?
