If you take the nuts and the heavy paper insulation off the screw, 
you'll see the screw goes through a  white plastic sleeve that isolates 
the screw from the body of the sending unit.  The sleeve also holds the 
ground wire in place - there's a groove along the bottom of the hole in 
the body that the ground wire sits in.  The sleeve provides the seal.  
Don't twist the screw - the lead to the wound resistor is soldered to 
the screw.
