If you were more local, I could have swapped you mine for yours with some cash me way.
Freight would kill it though.
Did you try a radiator shop?
The BRE 510 had section of pipe (Maybe 2.5-3inch?) set into the bottom of the tank, with a floor in it and the fuel outlet in the bottom. This way they could run until there was no gas left in the tank. Some of the guys on Oldschool might be coming down from the north island for the old school hanmer meet. But I doubt they'd wanna lug a fumy old fuel tank down, and then back up again though.

If only I was closer Bart, that would have been the best option!

About to do mine for the 1600, just going to fill it up with water and cut/weld it full.
Will then run a small tank with internal pump in the wheel well.

Love this car.............
