The fuel gauge in my 84 k30 diesel just started reading a full tank as a bit above 1/4 full on the gauge. Seems to work otherwise. Gauge harness seems to be plugged in fine. Is this a sending unit or gauge issue?

Most likely it's a sending unit problem. Check the resistance with an ohm meter, should be 0 ohms empty, and 90-95 full.
