I am looking for help with the fuel tank mount/skidplate for a 1979 F250 regular cab longbox. All of the trucks here that have them are rusted out so bad that they're completely unuseable. Is there a source for this part, can I convert it to something else? The tank is in great shape and works fine, but I have no way to hold it up!!
I was at a yard in Fremont CA, a you pull it on mowery. Found a 1978 with the bed off and a plastic tanks on the drivers side inside frame with metal bracket completely around the tank, all lines, wires, evaporative canisters ect.
Does anyone know how/what to get to convert from plastic to steel? I wouldn't think that it would be too big of a deal to get the straps and tank, but I don't know for sure. I don't really care which one I have, I just want to have a tank in the darn thing.
I had a 1979ish, I say that because it was a salvaged truck that had a few different year parts on it, and it was registered as a 1971 :P. But it had side mounted plastic fuel tanks. I thought they were from a place like JCWhitney since they did not have sending units. I can take a picture of the straps to see if they are close to what you have. I looked on LMC.com and they show the tanks but not the straps . I will try to post the pictures tonight some time.
