Hi all, I'm after some "think tank" advice and thoughts.

After an extreemly challanging search, engine missing and spluttering boiled down to a "fuel flow" problem in my Turbo XT.

I pulled the tank out, the inside is totally rusted out, the pickup badly blocked. Well and truly past the acid bath stage (and i split it in 2 with the view to a clean and reweld)its just dead.

My other XT tank turned out to be the same...:banghead: even the sender is rusted...
Has anyone else had this problem ?

As I can't find a replacement thats any good, my options seem to be a custom made tank - any one got any ideas?

So far, I am considering a slightly modified stainless steel "marine cruise tank" off the shelf, but is smaller capacity. The other is to make one myself. Took a photo to some fabricaters (they didn't like the dent for the rear diff) and $ glowed from their eyes.

Remember, I am in Australia, Thanks for offers for tanks in the US, but need one in Aus.
Thanks .. Chris
