Sender unit question.

Recommended Posts

A few months back I eventually got around to fitting the petrol tank I bought from Sheff-Cort-Cent a couple of years back (I think)! On refitting the sender unit I found the metal pipe to be loose. Not wobbling around loose but loose enough for it to turn and probably leak. Any ideas on what I could use to tighten it up and seal it again?

Hi Beeper, Give the joint a really good clean off on both sides and have a go at soldering it. Use a gas torch rather than a soildering iron. Obviously with the sender unit out of the tank !!
