    Looks like you need to get a new fuel send. The float in the tank likes to rust out and sink in these cars. Good luck on getting one that will read right. I replaced mine last winter and when the tank was full it read 3/4. So I'm going to order another one and see if that does the trick.

    No pulling the tank on a 66. Just hope you can undo the drain, If not then run the car until it's empty. The sender mounts to the bottom of the tank.
