if you ground the green wire that attached to the sender unit the guage will max out if the wire and gauge are working

Ontario, Canada eh!
It should be a green wire.
Another option is to just run a new wire to your coolant temp sensor. If you can't find that, you can find a waterneck (your rad hose attaches to it) with built in temp sensor, from most auto parts sources.

Driverside head between the 1 and 3 exhaust manifolds, if its stock it will look like a round bronze tab if its been changed it will be flat tab
