New Tank – Update
Started assembling the new gas tank and ran into a snag right off the bat. So followed the directions for assembling the pump in terms of the depth. Everything went together smooth, put the pump in and started screwing it down. Looking through the fuel sending unit hole though, noticed the bottom of the pump was nearly an inch off the bottom of the tank! Certainly don’t want to be running out of gas when I think I’ve got more to go. Out comes the pump and the tape measure. This time, measured and cut the feed tube in order to put the bottom of the pump at the height that I wanted off the tank. Now about 1/4″ off the bottom, about perfect I think.
Before and after photos. Difference was about 3/4″.
Getting closer. Have to put in the sending unit next.
