Fuel leak after install fuel sender unit

I just put a full tank and saw a lot fuel leaked at bottom of left side.

When I put the service cap back I aligned the sender plastic notch with seating metal notch, then hand tight the ring before wrench it tight.

What did I do wrong ? I put new o-ring and new metal locking ring. This sucks!

Ok. For anyone else who might ran into same...

seat the metal ring well and turn it REALLY tight. The o-ring is pretty beefy to take that. Will see after a long drive. Leave the metal cover off for easy check.

It was leaking from top.
