A2 pre emission gas tank

Post by UDTDave » October 12th, 2017, 10:37 pm

Looking for a A2 pre emission gas tank, complete if possible in Texas. I posted photos of the A2 this is for under the photo index. It is labeled “Just got this A2”

Try RAPCO or Red River (see G838 Resource List above) for the A2 tanks. Make sure to specify the pre-emissions style.

That's going to be a tough one to find anymore but keep searching. It is the same as the A1 tank so they are getting hard to find.

great news. Found a correct used gas tank in great complete condition. The guy is delivering it for $200 plus some gas money. Lucky day. That’s the final big expense. ....

I would get it cleaned and coated before even using it. The newer gasolines with alcohol are brutal on the bare metal tanks.

I am cleaning it now and ordered red kote gas tank sealer. Hopefully after all the cleaning and coating I hope it will work fine. So now after the filter at the cap, the tank filter and in line filter upgrade I hope not to have any more dirty fuel line problems.
