    My '87 K5 has 2 wires coming from the sender. 'Bout 2ft long; they go to a 2-pin Weather-Pak connector on the left framerail, just about in-line with the front edge of the tank. The darker wire (unsure of exact color...) is pump power; the lighter wire is the sender.

    Again, this is an '87 but I'd imagine it's pretty similar. Hope it helps...

    Also, the ground wire bolts to the frame on the same side.
