I will try to keep this brief, but I think you need a bit of back story to understand the issue. While driving around, my engine started to sputter until eventually it died. After trying a bunch of fixes, I decided to check the fuel tank assembly. Shockingly, I found the engine issue was due to the fuel tank assembly begin bent at almost 90 degree angle and wasn't reaching the fuel that was in the tank.

Recently I purchased a brand new fuel tank assembly for a 20 gallon tank. I soon found out why the previous owner had bent the fuel tank assembly. The assembly unit was too tall for the tank. When I submerged the assembly into the tank, the unit was standing about 1-1.5 inches above the screw holes of the tank. Oddly enough, the screw holes and the plate on top of the unit matched.

Any thoughts? Were there YJs made with a 15 gallon tank and I bought the wrong assembly unit?

Could the tank have been replaced? If so, why would the screw holes match up?
