I have a very good tank for a 29 model a. I have been debating cutting the bottom out of it for more room behind my dash but just havent been able to bring myself to destroy it. I would sell it to you for whatever it cost me to replace with something else plus shipping of course. Wayne bandit16t@yahoo.com

i ended up finding a good one - i appreciate the offer - i still have the old one and maybe someday i will get it fixed as a spare. lately i have been thinking of just selling the 29 as i never use it. thanks ed

    It has been timed. Float has been adjusted once or twice. It's a wonder the muffler remains on the car. Thanks for any ideas. Barry
