Like 2 says, the box might have been on a shelf decades before you bought it. Soaking the gasket even a couple hours before instsalling helps. Now, the installing is another hang up. Kinda best to have it all appart on a bench. The wet gasket as round as you can get it, bronze screen absolutely certainly in the exact posaition... if that is off center it will keep the gasket from ever sealing. Then screw it into the bottom of the tank with your choice of sealants. Some people replace these with inline filters, but then there is no water trap or shut off...and they all need a fuel shut off....

On page 17 of the TO-20 Operation and Maintenance Manual, in the "Fuel Filter and Sediment Bowl" section it says "NOTE: valve has a left hand thread."

What thread ts this referring to? The valve into fuel tank? If so, I"ve never seen it mentioned on the board.

I also need to replace a leaking sediment bowl gasket, and I"ll also probably be removing the valve to clean and coat the fuel tank, as well.
