Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to dispute what you bought. I was just trying to clarify what gbh had posted about it being an 8-32. Just explaining to those that might not know what an 8-32 actually was.

If what you actually PUT IN was metric that's fine (what ever works) but if it WAS an 8-32, it was STANDARD SAE not METRIC...that was the only thing I was trying to say, sorry for the confusion.

By the way, if I was a betting man, I'd say it was probably an 8-32 thread in the tank and if a METRIC screw in the range of a M4 or M5 (an M8 is roughly the size of our 5/16" bolt)was screwed into it, it would probably work (but I wouldn't lean on that screw driver very much)

Again, sorry for the intrusion and confusion.
