Pulling your tank is your only option I see...Your sending unit could be just stuck, hard to say though.

Pulling the tank is a pain...But it will answer the question of what's going on. Do yourself a favor if you go to all the trouble of pulling it and replace the pump assy gasket and hoses as long as you have it down!

On my 88 Grand waggy they were kind enough to put an access panel to get at the sending unit under the rear seat. No such luck on the YJ though. A pain, especially if youve had her in the mud and gunk and salt... The bands will break off etc. etc. be sure to use a torch to cut through any rounded off bolts.............
