What's in the Box

Info

These 17 gallon aluminum fuel tanks are designed to be mounted under your 1947-53 Chevy pick-up box. The 1-1/2" filler neck will require a remote filler neck or fuel filler door in the box floor. They DO NOT accept the original truck fuel sending unit, but do accept the common sending unit provided with aftermarket gauge sets.  Therefore consideration is needed when choosing the fuel gauge configuration when purchasing.

Measures 38" x 12" x 8-1/2".  The actual tank is 38" wide, the mounting tabs are 3" on each side of the tank.  The total width of this tank is 44" with the mounting tabs.

  • 1/4" female NPT for vent hose / fitting
  • Male AN# 6 fitting affixed to a pick-up tube threaded into tank with 3/8" NPT threads

Note: The pickup tubes are sealed into the tank to prevent leaks and removal will damage both the threads on the pickup tube as well as the tank fitting.

Notes

Please note that the pickup tube when installed into the tank is bonded in place and is not able to be removed from the tank.  If the pick up tube is removed, damage to the tank and pickup tube threads will occur.
