I used a little black rtv to hold it in being careful to only get it on the edges.  I hope it sticks.  If not I will try your other method.

I hope the rtv you used is resistant to gas.   Some of it is not.

I was thinking that too. Seal-All would have been my pick.

In the old days 60 yrs ago they would have probably used "Indian Head" Shellac.

But being in charge of a shellac production for a few years at the GE plant where I worked. It was made from shellac flakes, rosin, and denatured ethyl alcohol.

So guess what, gasohol will desolve Indian Head Shellac
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

My neighbor works on Mercedes.  He gave me this to use:  http://www.needswings.com/Mercedes-Engine-Sealant-RTV-003989982010.aspx

He said that it should hold fine, but time will tell.

I did pocket watch repair for about 35 years and the roller jewel is held in place with a small flake of shellac that is heated up and melted into place.

It looks like pretty good sealer, it probably will be fine.

The black nipple is .327 on the big end. The brass looking piece is to drive it in to the tank.

That tank vent is similar to what Echo uses.
