I have recently received the parts to replace the fuel system from the tank to the carburetors. The tank, I should mention was cleaned professionally.
The fuel sending unit needs to be installed onto the tank. When I removed the old one I removed 6 screws and 6 washers then pulled the sending unit from the tank. I now have a new one. I have 6 screws and 12 washers. The manual says remove the 6 screws after removing the wires then do the reverse to install. End of directions. Why do I have 12 washers? One washer goes on the screw so that leaves 6 washers. Can anyone please tell me where the other 6 washers go? Does the cork gasket need to be soaked in oil previously? Should I use a gasket sealer?
Thanks in advance.
