I have a 1978 MF 230 gas replacing the sending unit can't get the new rubber gasket to seal that goes between the tank and the sending unit . However, I did notice the old unit used a cork gasket instead of rubber was going to try to make a cork gasket to get it to seal. If any one has encounter this problem any info would be appreciate. Thanks

I think mine has a cork gasket. You need to be careful with cork not to over tighten it.

I was able to get the sending unit sealed with a cork gasket after running the tractor for a couple hours the unit doesn't read accurately it might need adjustment.

I was able to get the sending unit calibrated ,however, when the tractor is on level ground and not moving it reads accurately when the tractor is moving gas inside the tank is moving and so is the gage is this normal for a tractor fuel gage.
