Default Fuel sending unit

My fuel sending unit and fuel gauge hasn't been working properly so I dropped the tank to re-bent/clean the fuel sending unit. I ohm tested and everything seemed fine; put it back in and my fuel gauge wasn't registering. So I dropped again, took the unit out and ran a ground wire to a chassis bolt, plugged it in and saw the fuel gauge was working properly on th dash. I figured it was a grounding issue so I put the unit back in and ran a ground wire from the top screw to the gas tank skid plate bolt, and the fuel gauge doesn't work. I am perplexed and frustrated to say the least. Any ideas?

Question for you - does the gauge unit depend on the tank to be grounded - or - does it have a ground of it's own through the wiring harness?

My suggestion is you find the fault & fix it rather than devising a "band-aid" fix.

Oh - if you're really looking for guidance, maybe give us a hint as to what you're driving...

I guess providing my vehicle info WOULD be helpful... I have a 1988 Suzuki samurai, stock fuel tank, and the tank itself is in good shape/ clean fuel when emptied.
The fuel sending unit only has a power wire and relies on the unit mounting screws to provide the ground. So reinforcing the ground with another wire isn't a band aid it's insurance.

in that case, it sounds to me like you're still missing a ground.
