810-812 fuel tanks was created by balinwire
My gas tank is in terrible condition and have been looking for a reproduction. There is a company called Rock Valley auto parts that builds custon fuel tanks for antique autos. They could make these tanks with the filler neck angle and drain if they had a pattern, Is there anyone in the Illinois area who could lend them a tank for a pattern? I am sure we all could use their services. www.rockvalleyantiqueautoparts.com/catal...nks_order_custom.pdf

That is fantastic you are recreating these, I suppose the beaded panels and side seams, drain plug and fuel sender location are correct as well. In this humid gulf-coast air and the fuel additives in today's gas standard metal steel will not survive more than a few years. I would much prefer a similar steel as the original but it will have to be stainless steel to survive the millennia I hope my Cord will. Every tank I have in every tool or vehicle has rust and corroded plastic fittings. The cars with stainless are perfect, they do not grow the brown flaky rust and begin to perforate and leak creating a dangerous situation. Also a slightly heaver gauge steel with original beaded profiles would be preferred. My straps and felt belts seem to be OK.
