[Healeys] Fuel Sender Gasket

Bob,  Another great sealant is Hylomar that is oil and fuel resistant.  The success of Hylomar is to let it dry for about and hour so it becomes very thick and sticky.  It doesn't need to be put on very thick.  The method I use is apply it with an acid brush by putting a dab on the flat side of the brush and patting it on the sealing surfaces of the gasket or the hard surfaces that are most convenient to access.  You do have to let it dry in open air to be most effective.  You want a stippling effect after you finish application.  After the initial torquing of the fasteners, re-torque them again in an hour or so as some of the Hylomar will squeeze out.

Listers,We have a small problem with our BN2: we can't get the sender unitto completely seal against the tank.  We've tried all types of materials;inc. the Moss rubber-like gasket, paper gasket material, cork, etc.  This isa new tank and the flange around the opening isn't as robust as on an originaltank, and the flange on the sender has been warped somewhat, probably byover-tightening.  The best result has been from a cork gasket my dadfabricated, but it still seeps a little with a full tank.Anysuggestions?TIA,Bob_______________________________________________SupportTeam.Net http://www.team.net/donate.htmlSuggested annual donation $12.75Archive: http://www.team.net/archiveForums:http://www.team.net/forumsHealeys@autox.team.nethttp://autox.team.net/mailman/listinfo/healeysUnsubscribe/Manage:http://autox.team.net/mailman/options/healeys/bighealey3k@aim.com
