I replaced my fuel pump and tested the wiring of the old pump after-the-fact. The contact points at the fuel guage worked perfectly with the ohm meter. The wires inside the tank worked equally well when the connector was separated inside the tank. The wires from the tank to rear seat connector had no ohm variability as the float was moved indicating a full circuit. When I unwrapped the wiring harness from the rubber body grommet, ohm variability was again present along the entire wire harness from sender unit to connector behind rear seat. Conclusion: intact wires through grommet of body somehow were grounding though their respective insulations.
