Hi Mike,

I've used a few of these tanks with great success and have simply removed 
and discarded the nylon ring. The original style cork sending unit gasket is 
used with a smear of Hylomar applied to both surfaces and everything 
assembled as per usual.

Make sure the tank fitting is the correct thread. If it's not, Jorge may 
still be using a standard thread same as is used on GM cars. I believe Doug 
Reid (Mr. Finespanner) has sourced out adapters for this.
