There is a float. If you're inside the cockpit facing the back seat it's on your left. It's mounted to the fuel pump mount. I had this same problem with my '96 Tercel when I installed a Supra fuel pump. It WAS in fact "sticking". I pulled the assembly out again and made sure the "wire stick" that holds the float wasn't bent, then, i "lubed" it with some good old WD-40 and reinstalled. Turned the car on and BAM works like new. You must be very carefull not to bend the wire holding the float in place because it doesn't get a whole lot of clearance inside the tank and can easily get caught on a wall.
