    Howdy all,
    I have a 71 K5. I just pulled down the aftermarket fuel tank. It's a weird job that has four tubes welded into the thank, that go from top to bottom. The mounting uses four LONG carriage bolts to bolt to the floor of the tub.

    Any ideas on who made this?

    Also, what do you all suggest for a tank replacement? I plan to add TPI...

    I have a 31 gal tank off a 90's K5 that one day I will put in, just have to work the inlet tube to point to the drivers side. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    I suppose it wouldn't be too hard for me to place it on the other side.

    The hole in my body on the left side is already filled.

    How do they attach?
