You were right. Once the sender arrived today I was able to see how everything fits together. I have one problem though. I can't get the nipple off. The part to be removed is just the threads, or does the entire top come off? I tried removing just the threads and then moved to the nut, but I didn't want to apply too much pressure...either way I tried it didn't budge, all that happened was the metal started to flake off.

Ok...do I need to apply heat to get the nipple off? It won't budge. The metal on the rest of the brass piece has flakes off and the nipple doesn't move. I wanted to post up here before I tried apply heat with my mapp torch...

It's a lost cause now. That was a big waste of money...well it was only $25, but it was still a waste. Any idea if I can get something locally that will do the job?

Wow, what did you use... a hammer and a pair of pliers.
Proper tools would have been, a correct size line or box wrench and a soft jaw vice to hold the block.
Good luck on the fuel rail adapter, I purchased 2 and neither fit my ralis.

I used a vice with vice grips, open wrench, box wrench, deep socket, channel locks, etc...no matter what I tried it wouldn't budge. Getting a real fuel rail adapter made for a much easier install. I already put the sender & adapter in place...no leaks! I just swapped my Boomtubes for a set of GT Takeoffs because the drone drove me insane...now I'm off to run lines for boost/vac, fuel pressure & wideband.
