So I plan on doing this mod over a weekend to get more juice in the old girl since I've started doing stupid long road trips for fun.
blog.virginiaclassicmu...-tank.html

I just have one question that I want to be sure on before I go ahead.. I'm concerned about the fuel gauge itself, I plan on sticking in the 70 tank with the adapter neck and a 70's sender unit, but will the gauge be all good?

My current tank is only filling up to 40L at the pump, I gotta check out what's going on (haven't been game to run it dry).. I suspect either the sender is faulty or I might find a big dent or something in the tank... but while I'm there I'm gonna pull it out and up the volume.

Any advice would be good.

Your gauge should be fine with the new sender.

They should all be around 75ohms empty and 10ohms full.

Yep, 70 tank & 70 sender. It will be all good. The guage will read fine (if it is OK now).

Actually I'd think a normal sender would be fine as well, won't linear, would stay at the full mark till it used the top of the tank.

Is the 65 gauge linear ir non linear? I thought the aftermarket senders are linear. So will still work but if the gauge is non linear it will be inaccurate.

Are there two different types of later model tank?

One has an anti-pollution outlet for charcoal cannister right?

Yes 2 different types, however the one for the canister is not avail. If you have this setup on your car, then you have to modify the tank that is avail to fake it. No way to get what is inside that tank back in there. I have one apart to see what was in there, it takes up the top couple of inches of the tank. From memory, with that setup it is a 20 gal tank, without the setup it is 22 gals.

Cheers, I was told if I get a larger tank for the 65 to make sure I don't get the anti-pollution version.

Did you buy the special filler? If so, how much? I put the 70 tank in my 67 and now it takes half an hour to fill up as you can only fill up slowly because of the angle of my modified 67 filler.

I haven't bought the filler yet, there's a link to one in my first link:

I've got some other things to sort out with the car first, but I'll be doing the tank mod in a few weeks

The gauge is linear, or as linear as an old hotwire instrument will get.
The tank is not linear though, tha base is a smaller area than the top.
