Is a sealant needed on the gasket between tank and sender?

This is the flat paper style...not o-ring...

I purchased my gasket, cork, from Chevi Shop Custom Casting, gcoleman@frontier.com The original hex head screws had a small rubber o- rings and I picked up some at a local hydraulic shop. I used Seal All on the gasket and Loctite thread sealer on the screws and it hasn't leaked any so far. This is what I did but think that it would work with the paper gasket Hope this helps, Lamar

Thanks for your reply....

I was thinking Seal all.....but thought it might be overkill....if I ever had to take it apart again....

That stuff is pretty amazing...

I used RTV (The Right Stuff) on my EFI tank and a lot of it ended up in the tank.
