Got wires crossed here I think Bob T, the Bob I was posting to was Newbie Bob.

 

Will be great if you can make it over as well, Bob T along with Bob N & Bob F --- that's 3 Bob = 15 pence

Turns out the advice about not removing the sender unit if at all possible was sound. As predicted Im having trouble sealing it. Any advice?

To seal the tank well I made up a C ring (pic below) in 4mm steel plate with bolts welded through it to match the sender/tank holes. This can be inserted inside the tank and will pull up to sandwich the thin tank top and gasket between itself and the sender. Getting the cut-out in the C big enough to allow it to be fiddled into the tank but small enough to not loose sealing was the only difficult part.

Pic below is rough idea that I used with the filler. Same style for the sender.

All attempts so far have failed so Ive just ordered that o ring. Making the clamp I imagine will be more challenging though. Ill let you Know how it goes.

Thanks Peter. All received.

 

It fits the sender perfectly. Ive just used washers and nuts for the minute until I can build a brace. Ill hopefully be able to take it for a spin over the weekend.
