My fuel tank is pissing fuel from where my return line plugs in, Need a new fuel tank. Anyone around Perth wrecking a VK EFI or I think VL (not V8 carb) or any sedan fuel tank that will fit?? Anyone know what fuel tanks will fit eg will a VP sedan tank fit? what other options?

a vp,vr,vs sedan fuel tank should fit depending on how they have had it bolted up but as far as i know u should be able to fit one in there buddy

have you checked the plugs ? maybe it has a hole in it somewhere.

Thanks seems there are alot more wrecks around for the later models. Not sure were the exact leak is. seems to be coming from the solder/weld around the return pipe kind of like the medium used to seal were the return pipe meets the tank has come unstuck from the tank. Just another pain in the butt to fix.

No not atm they seem to be a bit thin. My mate had one that was 0.040 over but needed a block 0.030 to get bored to 0.040 to suit some forged pistons he had. Took 3 months to find one. And he had to swap his 0.040 for it coz the other bloke was boring to 0.060 so he didnt need the 0.030 block and swapped it. I will send out a PM to you if I come across one while looking for my tank.
Just noticed you are in Noble Park I think that is Vic I am in WA so may be a bit far to pickup.

you sure? the VK filler neck is solid/fitted permanantly. i think everything after VN have a different filler. im pretty sure you wont fit a later tank without some modification, then OP may as well just repair the tank he has got.

Is it leaking all the time or only for a while when you fill it up?
