There is an access panel under the rear seat. Unscrew that and you will be at the fuel sending unit. Remove the sending unit and replace with new or used one, note that the fuel pump is attached to the float, so you will need to transfer it or replace it. BE CAREFULL! You will be working over open raw fuel, so make sure that there is fresh air and DO NOT smoke or create sparks or do anything that may ignite the fuel! After you are done just reassemble. Before you start make sure that it is the float and not your gauge.You can do tht by plugging the float into the wiring harnes at the tank before you remove the sending unit. Move the float up and down while plugged in and look at the gauge to see if it moves from empty to full as you move the float.

1988 Ford Broco fuel float in tank floats in water but not in the tank do you need to replace the entire unit or the thing beside the spring thing?

The fuel float will float in water but not fuel because it has a small leak in the float. Water and fuel have difference densities, and the leak is likely small enough to let fuel in, but not water. For an 88 Bronco, the part you are looking for is COAZ-9202-B
