Okay so my fuel cell was leaking around the fuel pump a while back, and I just ignored it for a while. Decided to fix it so I ran to Oreilys and grabbed a tube of something that said it was fuel resistant and for fuel gaskets (cant remember the name). Well I think the tube was expired or something because in some spots it never dried hard. I let it sit for like 5 days without putting any fuel in the cell and it just stayed soft in some areas. Well I ran it like that and ended up getting a crack in my fuel cell because it was mounted down too hard. So when I pulled the fuel cell to get welded back up I did some research and it seemed like SEALALL was the product to use. I mounted it all back up and it still had some minor leaks (only when I was on major inclines or leaning). Anyone have any ideas on what to try next? Should I use an actual rubber gasket in between the KORE ring and the cell as well as SEALALL? Or rubber gaskets on the inside of the cell and in between the KORE ring and cell? I am taking it personal now and don't want anymore leaks.

I would think a good rubber gasket between the ring and the cell would be sufficient. I'm basing my opinion on everything I've ever taken apart has only had the rubber gasket and no curing sealer. If that sealall is supposedly good, maybe apply a thin coat on both sides of the rubber gasket. I wouldn't put enough on for it to bulge out when tightened, just a very light coating to aid in the seal.
This is just an opinion and not based on any first hand experience sealing fuel cells, but oem fuel tanks.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Most fuel cells now only use a cork or rubber gasket for a seal. IF you are only wanting to rely on something out of a tube for a gasket.....start here.. http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalo...prosealant.php

I don't HAVE to use something out of a tube... Just looking for the right way to go.

If it were me, I would go with cork on the flange gasket, and some nylon or teflon washers on the bolts...kind of like this

We used to use a paper like gasket at a bio-diesel plant I used to work at that was corrosive resistant that we used in pumps that moved pre-washed fuel. I'll see if I can find out what is was called. We used to buy it from nevada hose.
