    Re: Mk1/Mk2 Escort Fuel Tank Large Thread

    Hi Again!

    I have now had the drawings redone, with a bigger seal surface area (total diameter now 34.92mm whereas the orginal is 35mm). Link to the new drawing:

    I need to get back to the guy in the next few days with the order so please provide any feedback you have!

    Kind Regards

    Looks good to me but i am no expert. If you go ahead and the price is roughly the same I'm in.

    HI,

    Thanks for the response, yes the price will still be 25 - I still have to buy a minimum of 10 unfortunately. I will keep two for myself, and so Id really like to get rid of another 5 if possible just so I recover a bit of the cost.

    Kind Regards

    Joe

    Just found this tread. I used a coupling from a Groenveld automatic chassis lubricator, used on trucks, and it fitted perfektly. Hope this helps someone to get the fuel out of their original tank.

    Hi there,

    Unfortunately i never really got enough interest to make an initial order, so I ended up welding a -10 fitting on the original tank fitting.

    Kind regards
