    Cross member.

    I know I saw somewhere how far to move the crossmember for the new gas tank, but I can't find it, a little help?

    Cross Member? I thought you were angry about something...

    Remove the old tank and the cross member and trial fit the new tank into place.
    Put the cross member in and mark the new spot for it. Someone have a dimension?
    Clamp into place and weld or rivet.
    Install new tank with new straps.

    Looks easy on paper.

    After further thinking about it, I measured both tanks and the new one is 6.5 in. longer than the old one. Brain fart!
