Large brass punch and just give each tab a good solid hit and it will move.

that did it. because the car was standing for a long time, had some corrosion on the wire terminals on the inside of the sender. would have to be the world's simplest device - just a coil of wire and a brass slider.

some carb fluid and an acetone soak fixed it 

saved $100 for a new one. getting closer to finishing every day

It's normal practice with anything like that on an older car to hit it with some penetrating oil first.
