    The gasket is probably cemented to it... If you can't see any gasket, someone probably glued the damn thing on and you may be SOL. The gasket should be a square rubber ring about 3/16 to 1/4 thick. If all you see is metal on metal... some previous work was crap. If you can see the gasket, you might be able to get a razor bent and use that to slice through the gasket to release it then glean up the surfaces and replace the gasket. Otherwise, you may be out of luck.

    Dang, yeah I canít see a gasket. I thought about just buying a new tank and starting anew but now I think Iíll have to if its easier. Or Iíll try dropping this tank a little. Im working on my back with the car on the ground lol so its not easy. Otherwise itíll be on the back burner for a while. The good news is that it runs but it idles a little rough and is running super rich. As far as I can see everything is back to where it should be and the o2 sensors are brand new. The cats were glowing red after a few minutes.
