As was noted, you want the hole just a bit deep. If the insert is just a bit below the edge of the hole, it's fine.

It's been a couple years, so my memory is a bit spotty. But I seem to remember...

Do you know how to do 'jackstands & strings' to check your alignment?

Front of engine is a 27mm socket, IIRC.

You might try hooking up the fuel pump backwards. Sometimes running it in reverse will dislodge whatever is stuck in there. Sometimes.

The outer sheathing is just abrasion protection and a bit of heat insulation. The inner line isn't visible. And it really doesn't show any...

Interesting.

I think the 'non-original' bits would take it out of the collector market. But then again, so would the miles.

Heat up the end you are going to push in and make sort of a 'flat scoop' on it. A couple putty knives will do the trick. Then, as you are working it in and out,...

Can you smell it more strongly in a particular area?

The idea that it smells even when you don't drive the car suggests to me that it's the fuel line connection at the pump or filter. 2 10mm nuts...
