Earlier sender had a 1/4x18tpi SAE tapered pipe thread which is smaller than later 14x1.5mm straight metric thread. The earlier style threaded sender is no longer available. Later style sender is pn-9112459. Earlier one is 9309386.
One option for old style housing would be to remove housing and substitute a later style housing with new gasket. I ran across one housing that had a helicoil thread insert installed, which may have been from factory, or perhaps someone drilled, tapped, and helicoiled an earlier style pipe thread housing.
