Default fuel gauge not working

my second post, 88 w 350, the gas gauge is always on full. It is extra full.
doesnt matter how much i drive it always at extra full. i checked the ground for the tank and it is a very good connection. any tips?

that could do it, there's an unofficial hatch in the bed i can remove the screws and have access to the tank. will i hear it if the float falls?
