Thanks everyone for the responses. I tried to solder that original wire and it would not take the solder, as mentioned above. I spent a lot of time and took a lot of care while trying to get the wire back in place. The bottom plastic holder eventually melted with the heat. I finally gave up and ordered a new sending unit. Bummer, since the rest of the unit was perfect. Looked brand new. I now am hopeful I do not need to add a ground wire to the instrument cluster as well, so that I can once again tell how much fuel I have. On to the next project. Thanks.
