    Keep the old sender lock ring! Many repops are bad copies resulting in leaks. Someone posted a while back where to get a quality seal, they are not all created equal.

      I replaced the tank in my 64 Valiant with one I got from Vans Auto ax they had a good price..
      My tank pad was torn but in reasonable shape so I used it as a pattern to make one out if PSA closed foam sheet.
      I ohmed out my original sending unit and it seemed fine so reused it. Some of the after market pieces do not give accurate levels. Reused the original locking ring.
      I ordered a filler pipe grommet but can't remember if I used it or not.
      My strap was good so I bead blasted and powder coated it.
