[Healeys] fuel sending unit gasket

We just returned from 1700 miles in the Healey, and I smelled gas for the last 5 days of so… Turns out the Viton gaskets on the fuel sending unit aren’t sealing for me, either. Next step will likely be the fuel-resistant sealer…

FWIW, the viton gaskets didn't work for me; cork with a sealant did.

     Not that I am endorsing them, but Moss recommends the use of Hylomar AF specifically for this purpose.  By the way, it would be a positive upgrade to use the Viton replacement gaskets also available from Moss to replace the old cork type.  While we are at it, you should replace the plastic float (if you have one) with a brass replacement type.  OK, my lecture is over.

So, if it sounds and tastes like Hylomar, you should be OK.

I've had good results with this (looks, smells and feels like Hylomar):

What sealant should it use when installing this?
