re: So please MTV.. Gimp my ride!

Hope this works. Trying to use photobucket from my phone.

After 10 months since its last fire which was rough to say the least. And it sitting for an extended period of time before that she's officially alive again.
I was able to keep the Devious tank too. My new fuel pump assembly actually bottoms out properly compared to my old ebay one. Shes running a bit rough and def in need of a tune up but glad to hear her and that good old Spintech muffler again

Edit: didnt work. Ill post the first fire of the season vid in a little while

re: So please MTV.. Gimp my ride!

^^ ya i get what you mean but no. as far as i know and how i have it the assembled just shrinks down onto the large O seal then the plate goes on top of it to keep it down. However i like the way you're thinking and when i put it together i thought to myself damn this thing should really have another plate to keep it from running evap codes/leaks. The hole in the tank is a tad bigger than the the seal too so I like that idea thx dood!!
I got it from a friend and its very possible one of the plates could have been misplaced. Dont see too many of these tanks still in use today...
They're junk!! my buddy had to redo most of the welds on mine for me

I posted this in the LSOH thread too but just incase you missed it:

Gimp,

That center link is installed backwards. The heims should be towards the engine cross member similar to how stock tie rods are oriented on a stock center link.
