It sounds like you want a fuel separator to go back to the stock set up. I don't know that I would pay what they are asking for a new poly tank. Why not get a good used one or have a junk tank reconditioned at your local radiator shop for $50?

Im not dead set on the poly... They are ashing 165 for them, and Spector wants 125 for a used one. I was thinking for the extra $40 its not "used".. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> I don't know. Is there something wrong with the poly?
Hay where did you get the pic from?

Tim - I have some early 70's tanks in good shape. Someone tried to put one in a 1974 and said it did not work (too tall), but you indicate you already have an early 70's tank. Lemme know if you want a used one - $50 Andy

Andy, What I have now is the earlier tank with NO return lines at all. I want to get the proper tank for this (3/76) FJ-40. I believe it has a return to carb, Fuel separator lines, and breather lines. Is this what you have?? Looks like The Pic above.

Tim - I only have the early ones. Sorry I missed the point about you needing the return lines, etc. The later tanks are trickier to find. You might try Mudrak in Sonoma. All the best, Andy
