1967 Fairlane gas gauge calibration question...

Hi folks,
I have a 67 Fairlane that shows me a full tank when the tank is full (just a hair under that) and it shows empty when it gets down to about half a tank... I need to figure out what is wrong here... what I have done so far...

pulled and checked and cleaned the sender (it was pretty clean already, and zero rust in the tank--yee haw)... works well although I did not record the resistance...

while I was in there I bent the float arm about 1/2 inch lower than it was, to try to offset the problem...

no significant change.

any Ideas from any of the Ford Gurus would be awesome...
thanks

You can test your sender resistance in the car to verify it is giving correct empty (~70+ ohms) and full (~10+ ohms) resistance. If it is, then this article may help to adjust your gauge.

Thanks for the reply, and I did check the sender unit, and got very close to those numbers... but the article was not helpful useless in fact, for this problem. Nobody know what is the deal here?

Sender and float are perfect.
