Hi Stu,
It sounds as if what you've done is correct - tapping those tabs until the lock ring is tight and not bending them. It's always good to keep an eye on it for a while but after some time has passed with no leaks I'd say it's good to go.

I completely agree with Frank on the hoses... replace them all while you're in there. It's a low pressure environment and they are sheltered from the elements, but they're old and they can and will get brittle, especially if the car is in any heat.

Cheers,
Clinton
