Problem solved. I soldered a new jumper wire from the back of the PCB to the far side of the rheostat. Then I realized I had the wire on the wrong pin. Moved it to the right one, and now I'm good.

It seems to have worked. The fuel gauge is now reading a plausible value instead of pegging full. I'd take it for a test drive, but I'm going to walk over and grab a pambazo first. It will be a few...

I'd consider having the keyed connector in wrong unlikely. However, the ground thing sounds quite plausible. What are some good places to connect an auxiliary ground?

The fact that it ran is a good sign. I'd follow the other advice on here, then run it a little bit again, and re-check the compression numbers. You just might have a runner.
