Default Gas Gauge

My gas gauge just went out and I was wondering if anyone could possible tell me how to replace or where to find information to figure that out. I am just kind of learning to do this on my own. I know some things. Anything would be appreciated. It started going out and I filled the truck half way and the needle is below E. Thank you.

Sending units do go bad . But older trucks its starting to be connections and wires it seems.

HA! HA! I'm a supporting member and you're not!

I had the same problem in my 83 F100 I took an old wine cork and placed it on the sending unit now it worls perfectly and the cork doesn't fall apart either. The best corks are the ones from the sparkling wines they are more dense. Mine has been in for two years now and still works just fine.

Hope that helps.

Humm.. I thought In 1975, the F-150 was introduced in between the F-100 and the F-250

so ours is a F100 or f250???
