Default Re: 39 coupe fuel tank

Before you buy a new tank, remove the old one and really give it a good inspection. It might just need to be cleaned. Original tanks hold 14 gallons. You can also get repro tanks that hold 16 gallons. If you have dual exhaust stick with original tank for better tail pipe clearance. Also, make sure your repro tank will accept OEM 6V sending unit. I believe repro tanks have to be made to new government safety standards where the tank fuel outlet is no longer on the bottom like the original. I found that out with the 40 tank I bought from TANKS Inc. Plus, make sure you new tank has a drain plug and proper cage nuts for mounting.My plastic TANKS Inc. tank did not. I am not familiar with DRAKE tanks.
