Okay, so my tank straps on my 86 CUCV were rotted through, so dropped the tank to replace them. Turns out the tank is rusted through also and started springing leaks when I wire wheeled it. So I ordered a new tank fom gastanks.com, plus new straps from LMC. Also tank vent and filler hoses since I had to cut them apart to get the tank down (clamps rotted). I'm all ready to install everything today, and first thing I notice is that there is no way in heck that the filler hose will fit. The one from LMC is the same diameter on both ends, but my original is much bigger on the filler side. LMC doesn't list a different part for diesel or anything, is this a CUCV thing? For now I have my old one siliconed and duct taped until I find a better solution. Next thing is the straps. I ordered the set from LMC, and they are both the same length. Looking at the tank, the front one has much less distance to cover than the back. Is this right? I mean, the same length straps? If so, what's the trick to getting the back one to reach? I'm pulling with all my might and I can't get it to reach around. It's about an inch short. Do I have to hammer the seam in on the side of the tank or something? TIA.
