    Has anyone ever shipped a gas tank? If so who did you use? Are there any specific requirements? Thanks for any input.

    yeap, shiped it UPS. the only requirement is that i can NOT smell like gasoline. run the exhuast pipe from your car, has to be running hot though, for an hour or so. that will burn out most of the fumes out of the tank. that's what worked for me.

    UPS told me NO gas tanks, unless brand new. (ok) Think you get a different answer from UPS every time you talk to them. K5 tank may be too large for UPS as well, they almost wouldn't let me ship a dashpad?!

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?

    I kind of thought it might be tricky. I guess it would be a try it and see sort of thing. Thanks for the input, I appreciate it.
