Rusty wrote:Good morning all. I just purchased my second Elan, the first one I owned was in 1967, a 66 FHC. I am installing a new Lotus tank, aluminum, which came with a new sender and no screws. Question: what is the proper thread pitch and screw size? 6-32 seemed to be close, but not quite smooth enough for me. Any help appreciated. The car came with a Fuel Safe fuel cell so sender totally different. Thanks to all.
Lotus doesn't appear to have assigned a part number to the screw, so I expect it is standard.
I always chase and retap all threaded parts before reassembly, and I used a #8-32 tap on the tank.
Of course, mine is a steel tank, and your Al tank may be different.
