Directions specify tighten screws on gasket until the white paste oozes out. Does this mean that a sealant is used between tank and gasket. If so what kind of sealant. Pipe joint compound or some permeated product?
I had no leaks using just the rubber gasket , Teflon pipe compound would be my choice if needed
The screws, included with the kit, each have the white paste encircling the screw shaft just under the screws head.
I do not recall any mention of sealant in my instructions. Odd that they would word like this and not provide the "white paste" in question. I did not use sealant of any sort in my repair. That was about a year ago and no evidence of leak. If you choose to use sealant the only on I know of from experience that would stand up to gasoline would be Dupont 5200 Marine Sealant. It is white. I would be careful. It will surely seal this repair but if you ever have to replace again it will be very difficult to remove all the 5200 and may make sealing difficult without a smooth surface. May want to run this all by the Moeller folks and see if they are including sealant that did not get into your product package.
You will NEED to use a gasket compound made for use with fuel. I used Permatex Aviation Form-a-gasket sealant liquid. 4oz. will last me a lifetime... Worked great - good luck!
I used 5200 marine sealant sparingly....I bought two gaskets and kept one in my parts box...based on the idea that removing the sender will destroy the gasket.. Permatex should also do the job....
I ended up using Permatex #2. It remains plyable in a vibration environment and is not bothered by gasoline or other petroleum fuels.
