Fuel Tank Mounting Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've struck a problem installing my fuel tank. The left hand side strap appears to be too long. For the lett hand strap I used the shorter of the two.

 

The bolt hangs down where the red arrow is and so far too low to tighten the strap up.

 

My car had no tank in it when I bought it and the tank is not the original tank. The straps might not be either.

 

Does anyone know what my problem is?

May have later model straps (ie 260/280). I am pretty sure they had 60L tanks and therefore longer straps

Thanks that would explain it. The RHS strap was tightened up a long way  to get pressure on the tank and could just be made short enough.

 

I will make some modification to get it sorted.

 

I didn't realise the 260 tanks were larger. I might keep and eye out for one.
