I figured I would close out my portion of this excellent thread, which has been very helpful. I tried to get the sender back in working condition. That small nichrome wire would not let me solder or keep from doing more harm. I ended up buying a new one for less than $200 on Amazon "Mercedes Parts Hub". Delivered in 2 days. Original Mercedes box and original Mercedes part. Took 12 minutes to install and I now have a fully functional fuel gauge. Easy enough. I will put a ground strap in when I go in to repair the clock.

BTW, I have kept the old sender which is virtually brand new, except for the broken nichrome resistance wire. If anybody needs spare parts, let me know. Thanks all! FJINVA
