I know there is a discussion on the forum somewhere, but I believe I remember seeing photos indicating a change in PT fuel tank design at some point. One uses the older style ring on top and the other uses a newer style ring. I'd assume the change happened between 2002 and 2003 like most other substantive changes. But I don't know that as a fact.

My question is this. Can you not just use the entire gas tank out of the GT? If the lines are in the same place and the sending units work the same, that may be the best answer.

I switched just the pump and not the whole assembly... Just the 5" tall tin can part pump. Put the stock gt pump into my 02

By metal ring I assume you mean the hose clamp. I gently wiggled mine open with a good pick and a good needlenose pliers. I reused it by reclosing it with an "end cutting nipper"

I mean the ring holding the canister. I don't want to swap the tanks because then I'd have to siphon all the fuel out of my old tank. 5 gallons. It is undriveable now

you need a special tool to do it, and it's about $100

Are you talking about the ring holding the top plate in the tank? If you are just trying to remove the ring on the top of the tank, you just take a chisel (non-sparking brass if you've got it), and tap it around counter clockwise.

If this isn't it, please post some photos of what you are trying to do.

This is preferably a 2 person job if you use the brass drift. Lightly lube the bottom of the metal retaining ring with either vaseline or dielectric grease. Also the green or black large o-ring with the same grease. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER kind of grease. While pressing down on the pump assembly canister have the other person use firm and solid taps on the edge of the ring where the proper tool would normally go. If you see the ring start to bend or if you even slightly bend the ring STOP. Remove the ring and using a vise careful reshape the ring so when you place it on a flat surface there is no sign of the bend you made. flat. Don't be surprised if installing the new ring is nothing like in the video. Some rings can be very challenging and require a bit of aggressive posture and hammer hitting... lol
It should really only take about 1-3 SOLID hits to rotate the ring in the lock position.

why even attempt to do something that can damage an integral part of the fuel system - fastening the pump to the tank ? use the proper tool, that's all i have to say here. if someone wants to improvise and breaks something, that's on you, zero sympathy.
