Re: [Chrysler300] 300D gas tank question

Hi Tom There is an o ring where the filler pipe slides into the tank ;in a groove in the tank .  usually in pretty good shape , but can get new one. Judgement call . Do not use o ring from cheap kit in red o ring box. ( China) Must be gas resistant . . Possibly grease the pipe after thorough cleaning ( front end grease ). 
How is the cork ? I recently replaced the cork with Ford style little brass tank gas float by using # 12 building wire solid, and solder , cut off arm wrap loop around brass tank groove. Clean arm end till shiny wrap wire around it and solder   . I also soldered quickly to little tank . Cork can sink . Has to move in same arc thought center of float . Check sender with ohm meter , not the same ohms as common later (60 up) thermal gauges.( 10-90)  Mine was 20 to 200 ohms . It was ok , but corroded connection . I also solder a ground wire to the gas exit pipe where it leaves flange and ground that to car sheet metal . Common problem with fuel gauge is poor connections here .

Good morning,

We pulled the gas tank out yesterday (to fix the pick up tube sock and sender), and in the process the filler tube separated from the tank. Is it designed to do this, or should it be part of the tank?
If it is separate, is there a seal or??? that needs to be used to make sure fuel doesn’t  leak out when filling the tank, or bouncing on my dirt road with the tank full?

Any input will be appreciated.
