non-turbo models

80-84 4wd wagon
82-87 Brat
83-84 4wd sedan

the fittings/hose sizes can vary as well, but still usable...

so is a non brat model called the GL and the DL?
if i was to call a junk yard, is that what i would ask for?
im assuming the turbo ones are going to have different returns.

Yes - GL/DL - but not a hatchback. The hatchback tanks are smaller.

We put a hatch tank in a brat. wasn't too difficult, just used a steel plate ~3" across with some holes along each edge. bolted one to the tank, and the other to the mounts on the frame. Wasn't hard, but yea.....not a perfect fit.



GL/DL are trim levels. there are FWD GLs that would not have the right tank, and 4WD DLs that would, or vice versa.

as long as it's within the year ranges and body styles that McBrat posted, it'll be fine.
