Fuel tank relocation.

Postby 63D1OO » Wed Jan 10, 2018 1:36 pm

Hi I'm looking to relocate my fuel tank out of the cab. 1963 d100 slant 6
Being in Australia all the options that I've read about wont work for me due to none of those vehicles being here.
Should I look for a tank from a Carby or efi vehicle. A Carby tank I would imagine be easier.
Is there a difference between petrol and deisel tanks.
Any help on where to start looking would be great.
Cheers

60's Ford Mustang tank fits between the frame rails in the spare tire area. Type in "fuel tank" in the search area.

Hi I hadn't seen the posts about mustang tanks. Didn't search far enough. They look to be the best idea and price looks good ok for Australia. There seems to be quite a few in Australia for sale.
