The Motobilt Jeep TJ Fuel Pump/Sending Unit Clamping ring is a quick and easy solution to install the factory fuel pump to an after market fuel tank or fuel cell. The Motobilt Jeep TJ Fuel Pump/Sending Unit Clamping Ring is designed to be used with fuel cells like the RCI 2161a. Installing the ring is simple. You can use the adapter ring as a template to drill holes in your fuel tank. The kit is shipped with the upper clamp ring assembly; which is welded together on the bottom side. Unlike some of the others on the market, we have the bolts passing through both plate to prevent the ring from deforming when you tighten it down.
The bottom ring that goes inside the tank has a split in the ring so you can get it into the tank. This ring allows the top and the ring to bolt down without deforming the fuel tank or fuel cell. The upper ring assembly is CNC cut from 1/8 inch thick steel and the inner split ring is CNC cut from 14 GA steel. The top ring is powdercoated black and the bottom rings are shipped out bare metal. The kit also includes (12) 1/4-28 bolts, lock nuts, and nylon washers. Once the ring is installed, we recommend using Permatex 80016 Form-A-Gasket number 2 Sealant to seal the contact surfaces. This is a sealant we have used in the shop numerous times over the years for sealing filler caps on fuel cells
