Is there any problem putting a larger gas tank from a `68 into my `65?
Will the hoses line up OK? --- TV

I did it, had to relocate the crossmember farther forward and shorten the hard fuel line accordingly. I have some tight clearance issues between the tank crossmember and rear swap bar. I swapped in an A body 12 bolt rear, dearched the springs and added a gas cap door so these changes contributed to my clearance problems. I ended up bending up new J bolts to hold the tank straps. Obviously, the change form 16 to 24.5 gallons really increases the range, very noticeable during gas stops on the Left Coast Rally.
