FUEL TANKS, MOUNTS & FUEL SYSTEM PARTS
FUEL TANKS - One of the most frequent causes for breakdowns is contamination from rust and dirt in the old, original fuel tanks still found in many motor cars. The tanks were fabricated of steel and over the years have rusted due to water condensation and accumulated dirt and "varnish" from being stored with old fuel or no cap. Once a tank has rusted, it is difficult or impossible to remove all the rust. Some have tried to using a "poured in" coating to cover the tank interior, but this method has it's own problems caused by the coating flaking off and clogging the fuel system. Many have tried to solve the problem by installing in-line automotive type fuel filters between the tank and the pump. If the tank is contaminated, it will quickly clog these filters. Even with no contamination, the filter make it much more difficult for the pump to suck fuel from the tank, particularly at high altitudes. The Onan pump was not designed to draw fuel through a filter.
What's the solution?
A new stainless steel tank that can't rust. Finding a way to fabricate
fuel tanks has been difficult. If the tank is soldered, as the originally
were, makes it difficult to powder coat the tank due to the heat needed
in this process. We have finally found a way to weld and powder coat
stainless steel in the same size and shape as the original 3 1/2 and
4 1/2 gallon sizes as well as adding a 6 gallon tank that is longer
than the original 4 1/2 gallon, but fits in the same brackets. If you
have room for a 4" longer tank, the 6 gallon will increase your
range. All tanks are pressure tested prior to shipping.
10 GALLON FUEL TANK - Available again - Now in Stainless Steel.
TANK SEDIMENT BOWLS - We now have the original
(large size bowl on the left) as well as the small after market bowl
(on right). The spare glass, screen and gasket are available for the
large bowl only. Always carry these spare parts with you. or, carry
a spare bowl assembly. Throw away that in line fuel filter because it
is designed to be placed after the fuel pump and replace it with the
proper bowl as the car was designed and you will avoid many problems.
FUEL & HOPPER CAPS - These are new production
and are just like the original. Be careful - these caps look almost alike,
but the fuel cap is vented and the hopper neck cap is not - don't mix
FUEL TANK & HOPPER TANK FILLER NECK - These
are new production and are just like the original. If you have a leaking
hopper filler and have already replaced the cap, the problem is probably
the neck. A radiator shop can solder these in place in a hopper or fuel
tank. Be sure the fuel tank has been properly cleaned out and made gas
free before applying heat.
FUEL TANK FITTING - Brass - We use these to
replace a leaking fuel tank lower fitting. We pop rivet this fitting in
place with 4 rivets and seal the edges with a fuel tank sealing compound.
Be sure the fuel tank has been properly cleaned out and made gas free
before applying heat.
