Fuel level senses on 63 and earlier use a different wattage I beleave . I found that out when i changed mine a couple of years ago . Make sure you have one for 63 or older

I am sorry it is the fuel gauge that has a lower wattage not the sender.

im going to try a different gauge, and take mine apart and see if i can lubricate it to stop the sticking..

still does the same may pull it out and put in the original.
it also seems to stay on full till that tank is almost empty then
will drop to empty with out warning..
when i have it out of the tank it works fine when i move it by hand
it must be catching on something inside. (new tank)

Are you using pump unleaded? There was a problem with Chryco's, Fords and then GM's that used unleaded. GM used a fuel system cleaner to alleviate the problem. Could that be happening to yours?
