got the sender done today ...
here's what I had to do ...



first I made the top , just cut it out of some 12G scrap I had ..then I drilled the mount holes ..

trimmed , and finished to a perfect circle (well maybe NOT perfect .


I had a few difficulties figuring out the support .. because the hole on the tank is so small .. there was definatly some "grey matter working " but I got er' figured !!

the mount support , off-set to fit into the smaller hole

and with a little "massaging" I was able to finally "roughly" mount the sender , and stuff it into the tank .

once I was able to fit it .. I needed to support it .
so I made some little brackets , and drilled and tapped the support holes .
