Use some kind of o-ring friendly grease to hold it in place while turning it back into the groove on the tank.  You probably also need to replace the sleeve on the sending unit outlet tube.  I send these to everyone with gaseous rear ends.  PM me for more info.

There was a comprehensive thread on this subject about a week ago that covers the whole fuel system and where it leaks. As Halboyles said always grease o rings every where, in the few if any places they are to be installed dry it will be well noted.

If everybody in the room is thinking the same thing, then someone is not thinking.

And be sure and use the factory o-ring vs one from your local hardware store.  The genuine article is a type of rubber that swells when exposed to gas, thus creating a tight seal.  I've used silicone grease on my sender unit with great success.

And.... I’d suggest a more descriptive title than your name. This thread’s title, for instance, might be something like “Fuel Sending Unit O-Ring”. This might both attract more interest and make the title more useful for searches.

 

Regards,
