Yes and sometimes I wake myself up talking in my sleep, wondering if the wife was listening to me. That could be very dangerous.

Wow, that is a big picture!
MnTom, I finally located the proper sending unit for my Ram, if you go to Rock Auto.com 1998 Ram/Cummins part Number 5012270AA there is a picture of the proper sending unit. Possibly by looking you can compare it with your unused part and see what it fits.
Thank's Tom Kerley

Thanks Kerley. The one pictured is a little different that the one I have. Mine has a short arm for the float. I couldn't get the picture large enough to see the numbers, but from what I read the 24 valve trucks use one while the 12 valve use a different one and I believe this one is for a 24 valve.

So it is comfirmed the problem you were having with your fuel level indicator was everyone growing old ?

No Sir,
I am getting old and RH is slowly killing me, the things I use to do daily are now difficult and painful, just my personal problem, no insult intended.

Everything I read concerning the fuel level sending unit refers to the in-dash OME fuel gauge reading empty. After previously admitting my mental disorder I remembered and went out to my truck to verify that my fuel gauge continually reads full, so I filled the tank till full and have been using my speedometer trip reader to see how many miles I drive to avoid running out of fuel. After four hundred miles the fuel gauge reads full. Does this still indicate the problem is the in-tank fuel level sending unit or something else.

That does sound like the sending unit in the tank to me. I wonder if the float is stuck. In order to verify, you would probably want to pull the tank module. Something that you may try is to bang on the fuel tank with a rubber hammer or even your fist. That may jar it in case it is stuck.

In which way does the resistance on the dodges work?
Or the ford's, you can ground the sender wire to test the gauge/wiring. Can also do a reading on the float.
Now I guess you would have to have it out to see if it varies...

I've heard of people running real strong pump bio diesel and it cleaning the rheostat. Lol
