    I got a new gas tank to go in my 69 cruiser from ccot. Its the later model interior tank. I believe the outlet on the drivers side of the tank remains the outlet to fuel pump. What about all the others? anyone know which is the return? thanks!

    heres the link to the pic of the tank

    Can't help with install, but I do know that you want to really clean out the plastic burrs out of the tank.

    The fuel 'out' is on the lower rear section of the tank, towards the driver side, it is a hose barb fitting, NOT on the side of the tank facing the driver side...that is the return. If you hook up the return line as the fuel out, you will only be able to use half a tank before you starve the engine for fuel, even though, you have half a tank left....


    Good luck!

    According to these pictures, the fuel out and return fittings are taped off...
