It sounds like you got some rust in your tank that corroded the fuel sending unit as well as the in tank pump. Other possibilities would be the fuses. Check them all to make sure none of them are blown. Depending upon where you live, a mouse or squirrel might have chewed through some wires and tubes to build a nest. It could be numerouse things, but I would check the simple ones before dropping you tank.
