I was able to save my fuel tank today so I'm pretty happy about that. The inside is very clean but had a few holes in the bottom. Not the prettiest welding job, but I pressure tested it and no leaks.

Why use the short filter on there? The 51515 Wix or Napa 1515 1 quart capacity filter will fit on there...I always use as much as I can...

What axle gears and tire size?

Overdrive?

4.56 for gears and no overdrive. I m not married to one particular tire size, but will try to fit the biggest tire/wheel combo I can. I did keep it spring under up front so that'll limit me somewhat.

I'll check out the filter. Thanks for the tip.
