Re: Fuel pump won't seal in the tank

as long as the pump, seal and ring are refitted (even badley) your ok.

replacements from scrap yards are hard to get, as they usually all get decomisioned as per EU regs before being stacked in the yard
(therefore the tank has been punched and drained (big blue/green/red plastic plug sticking out the bottom of it) making it good only for squishing)
you have to pre-order the tank before a car comes in, so they can mark it for tank removal.

when i first did mine i got a replacement pump and ring/seal from a scrappers, i wrecked the rings grip pins and distorted the seal by over tightening on the original and replacement seal/rings.
i ended up having to walk to the dealership to get new replacement seal kit and special tool.
