fuel sender question

Guys....replacing my fuel sender.

A few year back I did this and the filter that slips onto the pick up tube had a metal crimp that secured the filter to the pick up tube.

The new sender does not have this. How does it stay on? when I slip it on, and then position the sender down, the filter just slides off instantly. There is no way I can keep it on and install the sender in the tank...the filter just slides off and falls into the tank......geez

What am I missing here? thanks all for your help

Paul

Is that for a fuel cell" I would ask the manufacturer.

Otherwise I would just add a screw clamp on it to hold it in place.

same issue

just ordered my second unit from morris 4x4. the filter is the wrong one, use the filter off your original. the reason i am replacing it again is the first replacement sending unit plastic float filled with fuel and sank to the bottom in less than two years. i tried to simply get the float but no go. so i ordered another $41 sending unit complete with filter,'o' ring and plastic nut. yea the filter was the wrong size and it leaks at the flange fitting?. it isnt morris, it's omix crap!.

This may be a little late be the brass float can be had a cjponyparts.com. There around $8 shipped. Thats were I got mine. Its a perfect match. Just look under the 60's Mustangs.
