With the key on and battery connected, your gauge should climb to full.
If it does you know the gauge, voltage regulator and wiring is good.
If it doesn't work, don't assume it's the gauge. More likely the voltage regulator or a loose wire.
As far as the sender, I see them occasionally on ebay and even offered by members here.
I think that anything else will be a sort of "make work" as far as arm length, resistance, connections, fitment to tank, etc.
Regarding a "$200 mistake", it sounds like your sender is scrap so, regardless, you will need a good sender so you're gonna need one if you want a working fuel gauge.
