Fuel Gauge Ground

My fuel gauge isn't working and I've been told to check the ground. Does anyone know where it is?

In the rear corner on the driver side up in inside the body. If you pull the plastic cover off you will see it. I think its a black wire.

It's in the tank if there's a issue. Both the fuel pump and sender use the same ground so if its bad it wouldn't run either.

. The wire I'm talking about I broke it by accident and my fuel gauge stopped working. I found that wire and had someone in the cab watch the gauge wile I touched it and grounded it to the frame and it worked.

Nothin at all. I haven't looked into it yet because I have some other things to do first. I just put a new motor in and the vacuum was a mess. Just spent two hours in the garage with a bunch of new vacuum hose and a diagram, took some pics of a 4.2 today and reviewed those also. Now my vacuum is correct, starts and drives fine, bout time for a smog and some new stickers!!! Maybe I'll tackle the gauge tomorrow.
