    I'm going to convert my '87 'burb to veggie oil, and want to mount one of my new saddle tanks to be my diesel supply.
    Anybody have a not-to-rusty set of mounting hardware? I'm not sure which side to mount tank on. any suggestions? Are sides different?
    Thanks, Andrew

    The brackets are the same side to side, they just weld the nuts on to different holes depending on what side it goes on. However I don't think your gonna get a pickup tank to fit under a 'burb because of the floor being lower on a rear seat burb compared to a truck floor that raises up.

    Andrew, hi there,
    sorry no pics or plate or paypal, i have no digicam, no one will trade me a working digicam for anything i have, so im without one still...



    rust isnt anything major, i will clean the two that are somewhat rusty if you want then they wont be rusty at all like the other two


    prepared to package them in cardboard and mail them yes, no biggie at all
    whats zip code there ? mail would be around 15 or so


    would trade for something i would be interested in

    never know what
    randy
