By "hydro locked" do you mean it had so much raw fuel injected into the cylinders that it filled up the compression chambers?

Yeah, but I got most of it out when I drained the oil before starting it then just changed it again with fresh 10w-40. I'm gonna take a look at the solder joints behind the dash and might replace the sending unit. But the fact that the gauge didn't even move when hooked up is concerning.
