thanks back at my parents this weekend so will try then, is the sender on the side if the tank? (circular gold piece)

Also if it is the sender is it easy to replace? I'm guessing I would need to drain the tank?

Easy to replace the sender.
The fuel level only needs to be below the level of the sender backplate.

Probably best to disconnect the battery.
Remove sender wire(s).
Take a hammer and punch. Knock the locking ring Anti clockwise about a 3rd of a turn.
A twist and wiggle will have the old sender out.
Installing the new one can be a bit of a fiddle.
Replace the gasket!
Keep the float as close to the side of the tank as possible, or it will catch on a baffle. You may have to insert it at completely the wrong angle, then rotate it at the last moment.
Then knock the locking ring round clockwise.
