The drain hole is only small to start with in the recess - won’t do any harm making a couple more around 3mm diameter and don’t forget to keep them clear!
Okay...will do sir

... i recall a member stating the fuel filler pipe could be pushed up - so the filler cap was above the rear scuttle panel ...will this be prudent...as i could not seem to locate the drainage hole ..

Was the sender stub already broken?
yes..the return stub was collapsed ...the pipe was slipped off without too much effort...maybe the worm clip was over tightened in the past. as it is complete.
