    I recently replaced the fuel sending unit on my 70 camaro. I went to fill up the tank today and gas leaked out from the top as well as it only registers 1/2 a tank on the gauge. Is ther supposed to be a gasket between the sending unit and the tank?

    Yes, should be a black "O" ring to seal the sender to the tank. Sounds like you are missing one or it slipped out of place.

    They usually come with the fuel tank sending unit. Round rubber O ring and metal locking ring on top with the sending unit.
