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.

RE: Conrod bolts

"Quote"

"You can't just change the rod bolts, when you change rod bolts you need to have the rods closed and honed by a machine shop."

I wasn't aware of this, I thought you just pressed the old bolts out and the new ones go straight in? What is the process to do this?

HZ petrol tank and fuel & temp gauges

gday all,

if any of you boys haven't seen a HZ petrol tank removed with 40 years of road grease removed, then here it is. i needed to remove it to service the sender, so i had to drop it. it looks galvanised and in pretty good condition really. btw, it took me about 5 hours to get all the crap off it.

i'm gonna spray it with a cuppla coates of 'motospray rust converter primer/sealer'. then finish it with 'wurth bitumen underbody sealer'.
are you boys happy with this combo?
