Need help with 1979 CJ-5 gas tank sending unit filter

Hello Folks,

I'm replacing the gas tank in my '79 CJ-5, and bought a new fuel sending unit as well. The unit came with an in tank filter, but I'm only able to slide it about 1.5 inches on to the 3.75 inch last leg of the sending unit. The filter itself is just under five inches. Should I be able to slide the filter any farther? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
