Question fuel tank inlet outlet gaskets

I pulled out my fuel tank on my 72 mainly because it was showing signs of minute leakage around both the inlet and outlet tubes. So while the tank was out I flushed it and removed both nipples. The outlet has a screen that includes an aluminum gasket base but it looks as though there is another gasket made of a non metalic material that goes on as well. The return line has just the non metalic gasket. I found some copper gaskets in an engine rebuild kit that would fit. I was thinking of using these gaskets and some pipe thread locktite. Anyone ever mess with this?

Be sure to replace all gaskets associated with fuel distribution and supply. Use the same material, and use caution when removing/replacing the bolts. They are easily broken during installation. Again, try 914Rubber or *********** for parts.
