What brand of fuel pump did you install? The fuel level sender is part of the fuel pump assembly.

I would open back up the fuel pump and make sure the float switch arm is not stuck or hung up on anything.

I read on this forum on another that part of the fuel pumps being purchased were not connected completely. There was an arm or something that needed to be attached and then it was good. Maybe that's it.
