What's wrong with your existing tank? You can get tanks repaired at radiator repair shops usually, which involves flushing out all the crud, welding up any holes/issues and resealing the tank. Finding another tank may be a challenge and may be equally as poor condition.

Hot tank and it should be able to shift that shyte out.

I used a place in Alexandria Sydney to restore my radiator and fuel tank.

Reason I recommend repair/refurbish what you have is that you know it fits your make/model/year of car. 240z/260z tanks are different and I am not sure with the 280zx what changes happened over the years, but let's say you got another spare and then it didn't fit you'd be back at square 1.

Hi guys got tank back. Unable to clean as has been lined before.

Bugger what now???

You could try ring Lindsay Drife at Zshop or up in NSW try Stewart Wilkins. Tim Wilkins his son has bought out Warren Potter's stash of Nissan/Datsun parts. Might be a ZX tank in there!

Best option is to get a new tank fabricated. I have issues cleaning my tank even though NatRad had repaired cleaned and painted it. Still holds much rust inside.
