Hey Rommel:

Bump -- This original message appeared on page 2 of the "Hello from the Philippines....." thread, but received no response, so I've edited to try again.

I've seen your info on the new and improved M38A1 fuel tank. [Link below]
http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa90/romski123/ProductImprovementM38A1GasTank.jpg

A couple of questions, if you don't mind:

1. Will the standard military NOS Filler Tube Strainer (see Item EE below) fit properly in the improved model?



2. Will the improved version have the three spot welded clips attached? (1 ea Item A for holding the fuel line; and 2 ea Item G for holding the Sending Unit wire) [See Wes' Photo Below]

Rommel, I bought one of your "old" M38A1 tanks. Paid 400.00 for it and after soldering in my old filler neck, I sold it for 200.00 and licked my wounds. The filler should have a lip for the filter screen to sit on at the bottom. There should be a clip point for the cap chain. The sender holes were clocked wrong. The sender was located incorrectly and the hold down strap ran right into it. The location of the fuel filter/fuel pickup was wrong and the fuel line and vent line had to be extended to re-attach. When all was corrected, the seat would not bolt to the floor because the tank was too tall. I needed at least 3/8 of an inch less in tank height. That height wrecked it all and I gave up. Your diagram still shows the tank too high and the filler insides are still with no lip. Don't have a clue if you corrected the rest. Anyone else have something to tell him????????? John


Thanks for some feedback, Smile

Warren, I got lucky and found a NOS A1 tank on ebay for 300 bucks. It bolted in and I was done so fast I laughed. I returned the lines to where they were. No issues---------fabulous. I'd hold out for a original. John

Yeah, that is a great find! For the price they want for these repop tanks, they should install themselves! It took me an extra 3 or 4 hours of work to get mine to barely fit - strap and filler neck will never be right.
