Lamar, if you get over these hurdles and are ready for a sealer, I have used Seal-All on my sending units, it is impervious to gasoline and is clear. It is available at Ace Hardware and True Value Hardware.

Got the new and correct sending unit and problem solved up to this point. I used the original screws. I picked up some O-rings from a hydraulic shop and used fuel resistance thread sealer. Will have to see what happens when I get to the point of starting the car up. After installing the sending unit and before installing the tank on the car I purchased two gallons of ethanol free gas to put in the tank to test the sending unit to make sure that there were no leaks by standing it up on its end and everything was fine.
