Hello,
I replaced my fuel pump and have had a terrible time getting the tank to seal. I changed the o-ring 4 times. The manual has been no help. I can see nothing to hold the o-ring in a sweet spot. I am amazed that the method in the manual is to pound the twist lock ring with a hammer! I am seating up to the stop on the retainer ring. Does anyone know a trick or have a tip to get the thing to seal up?

Thanks

If you purchased one from a auto parts store in most case its wrong.
You will find that it is a square o ring. Purchase on from a Jeep dealer.
It will be correct. Not knowing your year. If the fuel pump mounts in the
horizonal position get some weatherstrip adhesive for mounting it.
Some people call it gorrilla snot usaually black or yellow.You dont have to coat the entire seal just in a couple of places.The seal will stay while you mount the pump.
