I would replace all the rubber line and clamps while the tank is out

Rubber gasket between the fuel pump and the tank!

I would replace the roll over valves as well as the grommets that they are in, as long as the tank is out and you are already doing the sending unit.

Roll over valves are the white round plastic parts that are in a rubber grommet on either side of the top of the tank. They act as vents for gas fumes when you are on your wheels, but in the event of a roll over they have a flapper inside that shuts off to prevent gas from spilling out and adding to the already bad day that you are having due to being on your lid.

And like said above, all of the rubber hoses should be replaced as well. When installing the new sending unit, i always coat the top of the electrical connection on the unit with some clear silicone caulking.

Ok I read some where a while back to remove the baffle or bending the float arm to read correctly?

Don't think you should remove the baffle, but bending the float arm is a good idea.
