Congrats on the new tank, been a couple months since installed the new one in my 71. I had to change out the fuel filter after the first tank of fuel, but since then it's been fine.

On your weepage at the drain plug, since it's a new washer, try simply slightly loosening it then retightening it. That might help to soft copper conform to the irregulaties in the mating surfaces better, as well as crush any particulates that might be preventing a good seal.
