[DML] Re: fuel sending units

Seems to me that you could just move back about an inch, drill a hole in the tank and use a large truss-head bolt (or hex head - either would give you lots of flat surface for a good gasket fit) long enough to provide threads inside to attach the baffle/pickup - use proper gaskets inside and out with a washer inside and a nut. Tighten down and you have a new stud in the tank.
