I picked up a 2 3/4″ hole saw a few days ago and now that the new fuel tank had arrived, it was time for a trial fit. ? With some help from my assistant, Mr. Jack Trolley, I lifted the tank into place sitting in its protective cradle. ?First thing I noticed was the straps are of unequal length and that the right hand one is WAY off being long enough. ?Not sure what to do there, may need to put in a longer bolt in the front and hang it off the bracket.
All looked good, so I cut out and deburred the access holes for fuel sender and pump. ?Note the use of safety equipment – Norm would be proud.
