Fuel Gauge Doesnt Work

I recently bought this 1996 for a really good deal. The old guy that had it said that a while after he bought the truck (new) the fuel gauge stopped working and he never had the desire to fix it, he just topped off when the odometer went to 400. I want to fix it. What would the procedure be to fix it or put a new one in? Thanks
