suppose tou lift 3 inches, but drop the diff 4 inches. i read that 4 inches will clear.
TrashWagon 5 had 6 inches once, and it had LOTS of room, enough for an auxilliary gas tank inder the seats

I know I can get a Hatch Driveline from the junkyard, but the only part i cannot get is a gas tank. I was thinking of using a fuel cell. But those can get spendy.

Are they?? If so, i could use the tank from my wagon cause that is getting parted out.
I cannot get a tank from the yard. They puncture all thier tanks to make sure there is no fuel left.

BTW - changing the tank is easy - only takes about an hour. It's messy tho, since your dealing with gas, and usually lots of dirt up in there....

I think in my sales brochure for 1983 it lists a difference capacity for the wagon and hatch, and 2WD wagon and 2WD hatch. I will have to double check that when I get home from work.

As far as fitting a 2wd tank into a 4WD EA81 car. It will require dropping the entire rear suspension to 4". Anything less will require massaging the tank if you will. A 2wd tank in the Hatch will give you about 1 1/2 more gallons of fuel. Not really that much considering the amount of work required.

If I were to massage the tank to fit a diff... is that dangerous? It will be difficult to find a 4WD tank that is not damaged.
Ken... do you know if the 4WD Wagon tank will fit under the Hatch? I guess i could find out when the parts are laying on the garage floor tho

If I only need an extra inch of clearance above the diff... i might try to tweak the hatch tank to make it fit. Is it hard, or dangerous to bend the metal used in the tank?
