Getting the fuel pump gasket to stay where it belongs?
Hey all, I'm in the process of changing out the fuel pump on my 97 Tahoe 5.7l 4 door. I can't seem to get the gasket to stay seated, once I tap the lock ring into place part of the gasket is sticking out. Any tips ???2008 Silverado LT

Sounds like you might be over-tightening the fasteners. Check the torque spec and use a torque wrench to install the fasteners.
