my friend's 87gn fuel gauge wont show fuel level. he had digital dash, and now autometer. he swapped to dual fuel pumps. what part would cause this?

Fuel sending unit (on the pump hanger). It needs to match what the fuel guage is expecting.

There's a fuel level sending unit on the fuel pump hanger ... my suspicion is that the wires are pinched or the sender/hanger isn't grounded right.

The sender is specific for digital dash vs analog dash cars. If you are using an aftermarket gauge (i.e. Autometer) you probalby need to use whatever send they recommend.
