Re: Gas tank

I don't have the truck at home right now. Hoping to get it back here in the next couple days. I know the measurements are similar to what Buzzman posted, also it has the filler neck at an angle like was also mentioned above. Once I have it back on site I can get precise measurements and figure out what my options are.
Thanks to everyone who responded.

Re: Gas tank

Rich,

I used "Tank Renew" I think it's called, in Savage MN with good results. It was on a behind the seat tank in my 47 coe Ford.

They cut a hole in it, blasted the inside, welded a patch on, lined the inside, painted the outside. I had it back in two days for around $200.

I think it's a family owned franchise, they were good to deal with.

Re: Gas tank

I wonder if an LTL open truck would carry a used tank.
I would rather have tools I do not need than to need tools I do not have

Re: Gas tank

It is my understanding that fuel tanks must be certified "vapor free" or are Haz-mat. I would try and get some info from a truck recycling yard, they if anyone would know how to ship a used fuel tank.

Re: Gas tank

I just shipped mine last week by Fedex to Moyer Fuel Tank Renu in Greensburg, PA (gas-tank.com). they are part of a nationwide franchise that uses the same process. They cut the tank apart, sandblast it inside and out, and seal it inside and out. Here is their instructions for shipping.

"Wash it out with a degreasing detergent like Dawn for dishes. If you have trouble removing the gasoline, punch a small hole in one corner to drain the tank. Let the tank dry completely. Put into a large garbage or leaf bag and seal with tape."

They say a typical price is between 295 and 395 dollars. They have not given me a quote yet on my tank.

Re: Gas tank

OP should be good, I will be going by his place and delivering a correct size tank. The joys of being retired and on the road. New country to See!
