I never knew about the f26 tank until a few years ago.
I've always used the bronco tank in my trucks. My 87 up to my 95 have them. I just get the correct year for the sending unit diameter and it bolts in. Use existing straps with longer bolts and make spacers from conduit. Done it for 15 years now that way. Just modify existing sending unit like shown.
What size is the bronco tank. Someone mentioned 33 but I thought it was around 38.
Which tank is smaller in length and width, depth isn't an issue but my Reese hitch is a little inboard of the frame. ( I live in pa now but all my trucks are in Maine, I can't measure it)
I probably should replace the tank before I start building the exhaust for it. Cause I'd be pissed if I had to redo it after the fact.
Sorry, I thought I had added that bracket photo into my original post. Here it is, nothing special really. Just some .031 stainless steel flat stock I had in the shop.
As far as the 255lph pump module, I wasn't able to find anything back when I did this that was plug n' play like the Walbro unit. The plastic module itself can be taken apart, and it's just a normal in-tank pump inside. I'd imagine if you took some measurements you could probably find a bare pump to install in your module that was rated higher.
In my case, I had no plans on needing anything more than the stock 125lph pump, so I didn't dig into it too much.

the 38 gallon tank you installed is orginally for a earlier model truck? what truck and why won't the fuel pump for that tank work for our trucks? it obviously has a elelctric pump setup. is it a connection difference at the electric side or the fuel lines being differn't?
i have a 89 f250 and just put all new fuel pumps and a rear tank in my truck. i would consider this mod for a future upgrade.
is there a way to make the gas gauge close to accurate with your modifcation? that and i assume the tank would fit that year truck?
