Fuel Tank replacement

Post by DrJ on Sun May 03, 2015 8:17 am

I currently have the 12 gallon Chevette fuel tank which leaks up on top.  I am searching Spectra's online catalog for a replacement.  No problems finding the same tank but would like to upgrade to the larger 19 gallon optional tank.  

Does anyone know what donor vehicle the larger tank came from?

I believe the larger tank was a custom fabrication.

Agreed. My "MX" 's 19 gallon tank doesn't appear to
have been assembled with much {if any at all} internal baffling. Fuel gauge swings all over when I go through corners.

Thanks guy's,

I did build both tanks for my plane many moons ago, aluminum riveted together and sealed with Pro-Seal, a MIL spec approved product from PPG-Aerospace. That is always an option but before going down that road I'll search Specrta's site a bit more. Let you know if I find anything.
