Temp Gauge

I've read all the threads and I guess I'm just not getting it.

Brand new temp gauge in dash. Tested it by grounding green wire, it pegs.

New sending unit, no teflon tape, clean threads - 2 so far, AC Delco 8993146 (probably wrong) and BW WT358 .

Block grounded.

Checked continuity between body of sender and block - good.

Weird - also continuity between body of sender and it's blade...?

Still, it doesn't move.

(Previous owner had an aftermarket gauge in the same spot, it worked fine, I am trying to get it back to stock gauge.)

Any suggestions?
