HZ petrol tank

gday all,

i'm about to reinstall me petrol tank in me hz. all tidied up with 40 yrs of road crap painstakingly removed, primed and bitumen-coated.

do any of you boys recommend that i add some kind of gasket between the two metal straps and the body?

..like a rubber (nitrile) or cork or something?

i thought it would be tider to do so.

the factory didnt use anything at all and i never had no problems.

No real need/benefit IMHO but if you do decide to do it make sure you earth the tank out some other way to keep your fuel gauge working.

hq308,
fantastic advice mate. i wouldn't ever have thought of that. so important because thats the only reason for dropping the tank - to replace the sender.

excuse me hq308, but my i pls ask you what you suggest to use
as a sealant/gasket (if any) between the sender and the tank? when i removed the sender, it had a rubber o-ring - nothing else. could i just reuse it by turning the o-ring over? ..but still i dont get how an earth is achieved through the o-ring? ta. bij

Yes just re-use the rubber o-ring. the sender gets earthed by the retaining ring that holds the sender in. Hope that helps
