gas tank option

Post by mspeters » Tue Oct 17, 2017 8:46 pm

Rock Valley has drawings to make Mite fuel tanks.
http://www.rockvalleyantiqueautoparts.com/catalog.htm

They specialize in stainless tanks for hot rods. Pricey, but ~same range as NOS mite.
I had this one made without the fording/vent valve or the leak-prone filter access plate for simplicity.
I painted this one in textured urethane, then OD.

The tank was $950 in stainless. My last tank wasn’t salvageable.

There is a 3/8 NPT fitting at the top of each tank. A rubber hose in-between does the cross venting
It installs after the tank is in.
