Check out the wire going to the tank. If ok, the float may have sunk.

If the wiring to the sending unit is ok the float probably has a hole in it if the truck sat for a long time the float may have rusted...

Your gas gauge might not work on a 1978 Ford Fairmont because the cable is broken. Check the cable to ensure it is not broken or kinked. The other possibility here is that you have a bad fuel sending unit.

Made in 1978 First three numbers should be one of the following: 213=12 gauge 233=20 gauge 173=28 gauge 183=.410 bore

If you problem is that the gauge shows oil pressure with the engine off, you have a gauge or sending unit failure.
