The sending unit for the gas gage is part of the hanger inside the fuel tank that also is where the fuel pump is located. There could actually be two pumps, one in the tank, a low pressure pump, and another mounted on the frame which is bigger and boosts the pressure. You can follow the fuel lines to find the frame mounted pump and the fuel filters. You also could have a wiring problem from the tank connector to your dash wiring. A maual with the wiring would be a big help to get you started. If you work on the fuel tank, be very careful.

It's common for the in tank sending unit to fail. I'd start there. Find out if it is dead and then get back to us from there
