Bracket that keeps the sender from grounding? Why would you want to keep it from grounding?

My sender in the stock plastic tank has a spade on it for the ground. I though even metal tanks had a ground on the sender itself.

Where is your groung

So let me understand this .... you grounded the wire from the gas gauge on your dash that goes to the sending unit to ground and also the locking ring that's of the sending unit that has a spade on it?

I dunno what the dash wiring is since it's all removed at this time but I assume the gauge has a +12 V wire to it and a another from it to the sender which seems to be pink at the tank. Then there's the spade welded to the sender itself, not the locking ring, that gets a black wire which would be ground.

Not sure where my schematic is right now to verify this but that's my recollection on how it works.

Edit: Just remembered it gets power from that funky voltage regulator that I think is actually in the temp gauge. Looked at the diagram on oljeep.com. Not very detailed but a wire goes from the gauge cluster to the sender which is grounded. No colors on the diagram, no details of where the power comes from in the cluster.

But 1964 Wagoneer didn't use straps to hold gas tank up. It use tabs that are welded to the body in four places, I can't use those to mount a poly tank. So I need to know how thick and how wide the brackets that were used to keep the poly tank or original metal tank of the 70s or later look like so that the top of the poly tank does not come in contact with the body, from smashing the fuel line and the fuel level sender.
