baja-dean is starting off with a positive reputation.
i have figured out how to salvage any bad pcb in the sender to give another 30 years of use. you basically remove the dielectric between the resistor and the bad area and shift the pcb over 1/16 of an inch and there is room. I just did it and it worked.

also the floats have a design problem, the wire holder at the end is bent to much applying pressure to the float. Over time and sloshing around this causes a hole, I fixed mine by soldering the hole shut and soldering to the wire holder as a solid unit now.

and third I put in a filter in the tank and that one has been working for a few years too. why put in a ford pick up that we know had a design problem.

I discuss these in more detail at the below link on the subject.
