what size tires are you running? and do the tires come close to rubbing the fuel filler hose if that side was compressed? Also, is the in-line electric pump absolutely necessary or is it more for help? Would the stock fuel pump be strong enough to suck the fuel up from that distance?
This would only be a concern if you have an in-tank pump. Otherwise, the tank switching valve is installed between the tanks & the electric fuel pump, where there is no pressure.4x4Poet said:Excellent! Good to know for when I TBI my 2F.
Steve-O said:wantatlc: It actually depends how long you have had the tank. The newer tanks we get out of Australia do come with a sending unit. If you do have the older Con-Ferr unit, I'm not sure if it will have one or not. Companies like autometer make universal ones you can add, but you have to know what your doing when modifying tanks.
jhaha said:Yes I took the aux tank, used a hole saw to cut a hole just big enough to fit the float and rod in, figured how the rod needed to be bent, drilled holes for the cap, cleaned the tank about a million times, RTV around the holes and screwed the cap down. Doesn't leak and works well.
ducktapeguy said:Are you able to look through the filler hole? If it's like mine, I can see the inside of the tank through the hole and see the other end, so I know mine doesn't have any baffles.
wantatlc said:Steve-O.. I'd say I have confirmed my tank has NO hole for a sending unit (I was able to get in a very awkward postion under my rig with a flashlight and saw over a frame rail). so, I was curious, if I install my own.. are there baffels in place in these old tanks that would determine where you can cut a hole? I have seen pictures of the newer tanks with the sending unit off to the far right (drivers side)... but wonder on these old ones with no hole if I can place it similarly or will you end up right on top of a baffel and screw yourself? or, are the old ones like this baffel free so I can place the hole about anywhere with no issues?
