Fuel Tank and Mount

  • [2] ¼” x 4” x 8” Plates
  • 4” x 8” x 14 ½” Tube
  • 1/4" x 3" x 2" dia Black pipe
  • ¼” x 2” x 22” Plate
  • All welds assembling the tank must be quality welds, as they must not leak. Be careful not to “over weld” the tank to the mount.
  • Cut one end of the black pipe at a 30 degree angle for mounting on the plate.
  • Place the black pipe on the top plate, center the holes and weld together.
  • Clean the inside of the ¼” x 4” x 8” tube and the two ¼” x 4” x 8” plates – anything left on these surfaces will end up in the gasoline and could clog the engine when started. Tack and weld the plates on each end of the tube, taking care to orient the top plate with the filler hole as shown in the diagram below.
  • Weld the 1/4” tank flange to the small, lower hole.
  • After welding, plug the flange holes and perform a leak test to identify any holes for re-welding
