    Does anyone have a good outlet for fuel tank supports, straps and sending units I have the tanks comming but can't find a supplier for the rest?
    I have a 76 K20 long bed.
    Thanks

    I get my straps from my local parts store or even Autozone.

    I've bought sending units from Rockauto.com.

    I've never bought supports.

    That being said, I do have a good set of supports (sand-blasted and painted), newer straps and a newer left-side sending unit that I kept when I dismantled my '80 K-10 long bed. I also still have the epoxy-coated gas tank but you said you already have one of those on the way. What side is your tank on?

    E-mail me if you're interested. goldwing2000@comcast.net

    I am replacing both sides. Someone put Suburban buckets in it and poked a hole in the right side with a bolt that was to long and the sending unit vent line and the 5/16 line are both rotted on the left side so as long as it is off I will replace the tank. One support on the right side rear is totaly rotted I would be intrested in the support and sending unit.

    The rear supports are the same from side to side, so you're golden, there. The front ones are the same except that the weld-nuts are in different locations (they can be moved).

    Send me an e-mail and I'll take some pictures to send you this evening.

    Where in IL are you?
