They are a !!!**** to start.If its been forced more than likely the thread in the cap is damaged.Before you go to all that trouble try a new cap and rubber seal and carefully clean the tank threads.Get someone to hold the tank unit down against the rubber seal and you patiently !!?? screw it down.
Sometimes it start 1st go or you try and try again.

hi mate thanks for reply,we took the tank out and used a heat gun to soften the plastic threds on the tank,as it was a bit wonky ,,put the sender unit back in then screwed the cap back on,,,,seem ok for now anyway....
