The reference sounds familiar to me.
Use a dremel to remove the thread bits and fuel resistant silicon past to mount the new one. BSPT is a conical thread.

You need to be more specific. Did you break the female connectors on the tank pump plate or the male connectors on the fuel lines? It's a while ago now but Triumph were replacing the male fittings on 955s for free under a recall that went on for years. If it's the female fittings in the tank pump plate then you're on your own and best replace them with the chrome plated brass equivalents also made by CPC. Getting the residual bits out and cleaning up the threads is a bear but I would avoid using a dremel to try and clean them up (sorry fredsprint). Just pick at them with pointy tweezers or similar and then clean them up with a BSPT tap if you have one (unlikely) or a brass BSPT fitting after cutting a couple of longitudinal slots in it.
Have attached a couple of pics of the recommended replacements.

1/4 bspt thread tap. Do not get a bssp it is not tapered in the thread. I had to tap mine since no heat or picking would take it out. 2 min with tap. Boom
