Rotate the sending unit a little and drill new holes. Use the original screws if you have a metric tap, or switch to self tapping screw. You may even want to replace the gasket with a thicker gasket or a cork gasket. If you have some good silicone smear some on the red plastic where the wires come out. The gas is probably causing it to go brittle, I bought some Permatex (I think) Black Magic high temp something like five years ago and it is still usable and very good stuff. I recommend it!!

that's my 2 cents worth.

As long as your going to rotate and drill new noles, you might as well go to 6 or 8 holes to get a good tight clamp on the seal you use. You sort of get it for nothing as your there anyway drilling and it doesn't add but about 1 minute or two to the time.

I had the same problem.I removed the tank to clean it out so at that time I used larger diameter self drilling screws and a oil/fuel resistant sealant on both sides of the rubber gasket.Cleaned out tank real good and no problem since.

      This is a carb model not EFI it was in pieces when I got it. I got it running by replacing the fuel pump had to bypass this little reservoir thing I can’t find how it goes back in please help. Machine runs good but I have fuel coming out of the drain on the carb. This is a pic of the reservoir thing thanks

      Hi,
      Don't know much about anything utv but I figured out my fuel pump wiring harness needed to be replaced. Installation looks pretty straightforward, plug into fuel pump and plug in the two pigtails. Question is: one of the Pigtails on the old harness I am replacing had a splice in the black wire and attached to a bolt on the engine. Is this necessary?  Is the black wire, I'm assuming it's the ground, grounded at the other end of the pigtail?

      First post here hope it is in right place as I get familiar with sight. Have a 2003 550 mule,kaf-300-c7. Put on a new carburetor  as old one was in bad shape, jet was frozen in body, although it cranked and idled fine. The problem is: it will crank and idle fine BUT with a slight movement of throttle it wants to die and when more throttle is given it picks up and runs fine. The old carb. and new one does the same thing. The adjustment with the plastic stop does no good. At a loss here. Could it be the fuel pump, as I know nothing about these kind of pumps. any help will be appreciated.
       Thanks, Jim.
