If anyone has experience with the fuel sending unit, I would like to know if it is possible to remove the old one and replace it without removing the tank or the gasoline. Either way I have no idea what to do or where to start but I have a gas leak coming from the unit, and I need some help.

You can remove the unit from the top of the tank. No need to take the gas out or the tank out. That hard part is getting the float set show it shows full and empty.

Okay, I got it apart and replaced the gasket. Is there something about how you have to put it back together that could cause the gas indicator to function incorrectly?

no if you use the same one you are fine. it will only go in one way. the 5 screws are off a little bit so if you can not et it to fit turn it.
