no no no no no....... You've got to conjugate your Verbs!
Did you try BENDING the float rod to adjust the position of the float in relationship to the position of the pointer on the rheostat....
That will cure the wrong amount issue every time!
You might not get it perfect but it's good to the 1/8th tank if you're good!

I'd seriously consider putting in exactly 1/2 tank of gas then removing and installing the sending unit and manipulating the float rod until you get it right!
Saves you a shat load of money....
The voltage regulator on the dash <U>might</U> be for the operation of the fuel gauge but I doubt it, it should run off of 12V not 6 or 8V.
The rheostat on the sending unit is where the gauge get's it's signal, and they're pretty much going to be the same across the board if it's made for your '67, well, it's made for your '67.
