Hi gang,

Just installing my GSS341 onto the stock fuel pump/sender unit and i've found that the factory wiring is quite weedy, i want to upgrade to something like a 10 gauge/50amp cable for maximum pump performance. I'll have the pump wired directly to the battery and use the factory fuel pump wiring as a trigger to switch a relay.

My only problem is trying to find a way of passing the wiring through the sender unit and out of the tank without it leaking. Something like a fuel resistant electrical cable gland would be ideal, but is there such a thing? I had a quick search trough Google, but came up with nothing.

Any suggestions?
