  • Fuel gage sending unit gasket

    Hello, everyone.

    Due to a leak, I need to replace the gasket at the gage sending unit on the fuel tank of my '62 Lark Cruiser.

    Should I use any sort of gasket sealant or adhesive when installing the new gasket?

    Thanks!

    259 - NO SEALANT OR ADHESIVE IS NECESSARY, JUST MAKE SURE THE GASKET SURFACE IS CLEAN

      I made one out of the sheets of cork from a auto or industrial supply
      No adhesive was used ,it was in the car 9yrs.with no problems & as far as I know still is.
      Be sure to disconnect the battery when working in that area to prevent possibility of sparks or KA-BOOM !

        Same stuff I use, except mine has the 3M adhesive on one side. Cut out the gasket, punch the holes, and then peel off the paper and stick the gasket on the sending unit. Then you don't have to worry about lining the gasket up and keeping it lined up while you put the first couple of screws in.

          Thanks for the advice, everyone.

          It'll be nice to fill up the tank without leaking fuel and stinking up the barn in the process!

          Thanks again.
