Doh, it was leaking from the gasket but tracking out from under where the sending unit locking flange (the doubler) is attached, making it look like it was leaking from that area.

In any case, I bought Joel's Jorge aluminum tank and installed last night.  No, the welds aren't the prettiest but it doesn't leak.  I did have to take extra care to ensure that the sending unit lock ring was centered under the tabs -- on the first try at tightening it moved off-center and looked like one of the three tabs could disengage if one isn't careful.

On to bushings!
