I think you need to make ten post before you can send a p.m. we aren't aloud to barter on here.

I was planning on fabbing one when I get that far on mine. I think I have enough of my original to use for reference. If I was one of the southern boys on this site I would make it a habit of pulling useable parts such as these when I scrounged the yards and sell them at a fair price to the northern boys.

I imagine that they don't rot out nearly as bad down south, but aren't they hard to find in good shape no matter where you go? .. I'd take some "Southern Hospitality" as well if someone comes across a stash of these!

It's so cool to even see what one looks like. I ran a 4x4 shop in the '70's and when I brought home my new '78, an hour later I heard the sound of an air chisel back in the shop. Phil had cut one of these out of my new truck and build a better combo support / skid plate. He showed me how the new one had no paint or galvanize on the inside of the box.

That is sweet, especially for someone to a "correct" resto. I believe I see shiny diamond plate in my future.

I am using the body from a dual tank two wheel drive. I took a chance and ordered the plastic 2wd tank from bronco graveyard. I used the brackets from the two drive truck, I started with the. In approximately the same location +/- 1/8 inch. The tank would not clear the transfer case. So I moved the brackets back around 2 inches. I did all of this with the cab off, I can't imagine doing it with the cab on etc. but I will try and get some good pictures of it. The cab is on now as we put the transmission and transfer case in with them all of back on the mount. We had around an inch of clearance behind the transfer case and about two inches by the yoke. We are hoping to gain another inch once the engine is in and the transmission/transfer case attached to the engine.

I am running the factory 2x4 steel tank on my 4x4 frame. Bolts up stock.

I just assumed they ran the plastic tank on the 4x4's figuring they would get dented up less.

I used some stainless I got from work and a tire tube as a liner.

I realize this is a pretty old thread, but for guys still looking for sending unit collars for these mid-ship plastic tanks bronco graveyard has them now. I haven't bought one personally, but it looks like the right thing. 1976-1979 Lock Ring for Factory Plastic Side Tank-Broncograveyard.com


My tank and shroud are in good shape, but the grommets that seal the fill and vent tube to the tank are shrunk and allow the tank to leak when it's full. Not having any luck locating those either.

Do you think you would be able to make another set? And then ship them?

I'm from saskatchewan canada and would have to drop my fuel tank to use as a template to build the next set because they're a one off sort of thing. But if you're relatively close I may consider doing it

Ya not really. I live in Washington. It would be awesome if you could make a set, then I could pay you for them and shipping if you would be willing to do so. If not I understand. I guess i can measure and try and make my own.
