Nope, no trouble. The hole was tight enough that I couldn't get a socket on the plug with the sender tang bent to fit the hole. Motor is out for other reasons right now and I may JB Weld the sender in place to ease future plug changes. On a VW the plugs sit inside a fanshroud and it's extremely hard to hold the sender in place whilst installing the plug.
