Pull the fuel cap up and check the gasket. The cap just pulls right up outta the tank, wire will be attached. The gasket is under the sending unit.

Ok, thank you for that, was having a tome getting the cap off but that acrewdriver idea worked good. Inside i saw alot of flaked paint, a plate with 3 screws, 2 leads that were attached to the plate, and a hole that the cables went to the outside of the bottom of the tank. Those 3 screws were not very tight, so i tightened those and buttoned it all back up, gonna see if that does it.
