Fuel Pump O Ring grr!

Bike just came back from paint, and the painter removed the fuel pump assembly. I'm going by the manual, and it says there should be an O ring in the housing, right where it fits with the tank. There isn't. I've emailed him but I'm guessing it's gone missing.

If that's the case, can I use liquid gasket stuff on it? It DOES appear there was some yellowish transparent gunk at the tank-pump meeting location, so maybe Ducati switched to a liquid/rubbery stuff?

I really don't want to have to wait weeks and weeks to ride my bike...blah.

Thanks guys!

proper o-ring is a must.every ducati dealer should have the part in stock as its a common service item.search here for cross over o-rings but do so knowing it must be an exact match or gas could start leaking over a hot motor at the worst of times

Gotta use the O-ring! Or you will leak! Most purchase new ones from the dealer. I have used white-grease on the O-ring/sealing surface, TAKEN my time, as it is super tight fit for sure, start one side and push carefully............

Grease up the o-ring and the tank-lip real good, and try to keep it square as you press it home.

Some say to use the mounting bolts to pull it in, turning each bolt one turn at a time, but I could never get the mounting bolts to bite before the assembly slipped in with the grease.

If no other place, contact DucatiDepo.com, they are the Ducati "Chop-Shop" but usually have most of those awkward parts on hand.

Yep you need an O-Ring and lube both the O-ring and the mating surface of the tank. I have always had good luck using a few longer bolts in the threads and gently eased them in little by little. If you are careful it will drop right in - be careful though because it is really easy to pinch, or cut the O-ring, and then you'll have leaks and have to go buy another one. Don't ask me how I know

Good Luck!

Thats how i do it..

Longer bolts then the mounting ones and then one turn per bolt until its in, then replace one bolt at a time. I use petroleum jelly instead of grease, but it should work either way.
