'66 F100 Fuel Tank Removal - What to do with holes?

Hello All,

Now that I removed my Tank from behind my seat, what do I do with the Tank Mounting Holes in the floor as well as the hole for the fuel line going to the Engine? Anybody know of any rubber seals or anything like that? I want to avoid welding them closed.

Thank you,

John

There are no holes in the floor under that tank unless you removed the cab mount bolts. The fuel line hole is the only hole to plug.

+1 from what Crop Duster said- the bottom tank mounts are on the rear cab mount bolts. Throw those jokers back in there and tighten them down 3 ugga uggas.

On both of my 65's there is a fuel line that runs along the top of the tank then down the side and thru the floor, in my case, forward to the engine compartment to a canaster fuel filter then to the fuel pump. Installed a grommet where the fuel line passes thru the floor and sections of frabric and/or rubber fuel line hose to minimize metal to metal contact thru cavities along the frame.

Funny, I use 3 ugga uggas for something entirely different!
