Re: New Gas Tank Doesn't For Properly

ROBERT L GREGG <capngrog@...>

I installed one of the stainless tanks several years ago, and, as Jeffrey said, I had to "egg-shape" the holes to make things fit.  I remember  that there was a problem with the filler spout, but I don't remember exactly what I did to make it fit.  I did not cut any of the Crosley metal, cross member or body.

Cheers, Bob

I have bought three of that same tank.  On two of them I needed to egg shape the holes on the straps to get them to work. The third on fit perfectly.   Jeffrey

Ordered the new stainless steel gas tank.  It is not fitting as the old one did.  Dropped old tank to put new one in and it does for the same.  The welded brackets, straps, don't match up to the original boots.  Bolts are square headed 3/8.  We redrilled and tried to install but the filler pipe was too long and fits right where the cross member is.  
Any install advice??
