Okay that pic has the new wire in it.

Anyone have a clutchless fan they'd let go to a good home?

Gas tank installed! Couldn't find the correct filler neck so I had to use a filler neck for a 520. Doesn't bolt to the body like the 521 does.

Do you have a part # for your new fuel tank or dimensions or shipping weight and how many gallons?

I am looking to buy a new tankfor my white truck and the ones on eBay don't have pictures just dimensions and such.

On another note how did your new tank that was manufactured for a newer truck bolt up? I can't use the tank off my early year model 1978 620 cause it bolts to the bed and the 1979 bolts to the frame, one is a 11gl tank and one is 13? Lots of questions about your tank.......call me when you get a chance kind sir.

What happened to your stock tank Knottyhead?
Are you interested in a stock 520/521 tank, I have a few of them around here.
If you want a fast response you will need to message me, I look around here every couple days.

I know the voices are not real, but they have some really good ideas.

Long story on my fuel tank but to sum it up I bought the white truck in pieces and then got divorced.
The fuel tank in my goat leaks and the one in my now parted out blue truck don't fit as its mounts to the bed and i need one that mounts to the chassis.

How does a 521/520 tank Mount?

The 520/521 tank bolts to the bed, they are all the same size, the only difference would be how many fittings the tank has, the later 521s have a fuel vapor system that the 520 and early 521s didn't have.
It sounds like you need a disc brake fuel tank, it depends on the year of the frame I suspect.
