Will it fit 1973 cj5 Fuel pick up is on top tank through sending unit

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
I dont believe this tank would be the one for you.

Is this supposed to come with the plug for the drain?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, these do come with the drain plug.

there are two holes, do you know what type of thread and size each are? The larger one appears to be 1/4" but the smaller one has a different thread....and cannot figure out the size.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech.:
This tank takes the original 1/4" fuel line screwed directly into it. The other is the drain hole that will come with the plug with the tank.

Is the connection for the fuel line standard pipe thread, or reverse flair fitting thread?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
These take the original 1/4" fuel line to screw directly into the bottom of the tank like original

Mike, Your fuel tank #912008 does not show the return line connection? does tank have TWO ports in the bottom?? OR do I need a return line at all??

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
The closest one for the lock tab style sending unit with return line in it would be: Item # MTS-0042
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
They never had a return line connection on the tanks and it is not needed. The one port is for your original 1/4" fuel line and the other is a drain hole.

I bought a new fuel tank. On the inlet is there a valve that prevents gas to leak if the fuel line is removed?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
They never used one originally. There is a drain plug if your wanting to drain the fuel separately.

My old fuel tank had outside dimensions of 24.5 x 18.5 x 6, What are dimensions of replace tank?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Really depends on how you measure. Please email mike@kaiserwillys.com your vehicle information and we can confirm for you.

Which is better. A steel fuel tank or a plastic fuel tank

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
I prefer a steel one. They are made just like original.

68 cj5 v6, My original tank does not have fuel pick up on bottom, fuel lines connect to sending unit on top with lock ring, no holes on sending unit, can I get sending unit like original but with the six screws and plug bottom fuel pick up or do I have to convert to use bottom fuel pick up and use sending unit #914850 ?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Your tank is still a bottom feed. That is the fuel return line on the sending unit.

We are having problems with the fitment of the tank under the seat. The two tanks we've ordered so far the spout will not center up with the hole on side of body. They sit forward of center will this tank fit better. We've ordered the plastic and the metal tank for CJ 2A or 3A. Plastic tank MTS 0005 Steel tank 640685. Will this tank fit?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Our tanks fit perfect. Email mike@kaiserwillys.com pictures of your vehicle. You could have an aftermarket body too.

I need to replace the fuel tank on my 69 cj 5. My fuel pump has a return line. Where would that go on the new fuel tank?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Alot of people use a vented gas cap in its stead.

Can you tell me which gas tank, fuel lines and 90 degree fitting that fits in the fuel pickup. For the 1966 cj5 with the v6 225 engine

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please email mike@Kaiserwillys.com more vehicle information of which style tank you have. Lock tab or 6 hole sending unit style.

Hi! This tank does have a 1/4 fuel line fitment on it? I purchased this tank from some other company. And the fitment on it is a 7/16.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
These take the original 1/4" FUEL LINE.

What color is the tank? There are pics of black and green/brown but I don't see an option to choose color when ordering.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
It comes in black. Thanks

do you sale the one that fits under passenger seat

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Sorry, that is not reproduced correctly.

this will fit a 1955 dose it come with seat brackets ?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, it will fit a '55 as long as the tank is mounted under the seat and has six mounting holes on top for the sending unit. Thanks

How many gal tank is this? Thx

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
10.5 gallons like original.

do you sell the gas line for this that hooks up to fitting on tank

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
MS00204 is the part number.

Which sending unit will I need for a 66 CJ6 with a 225 V6? My current fuel tank has a return line.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please email mike@kaiserwillys.com if your current tank is a 6 hole or a lock tab style tank for the sending unit.

The tank bottom has two outlets. One is in a little sump area and the other is flush with the tank bottom. Which one goes to the carburetor?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
The large hole is a drain and the smaller hole for your 1/4" fuel line is to the fuel pump.

Will this fuel tank work for diesel as well gas?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
It is a steel tank. I dont see why it wouldnt.

Which gas cap I can put to this gas tank?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
640594 or 908593

What fitting goes on the bottom for the line that goes to the fuel pump?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
A215 is what goes to your fuel pump.

Is this the proper tank for a 69 CJ5 with the V6? I bought it for my project, but it doesn't look right. The tank looks right, but the existing sending unit has both the fuel pickup and return line with the six bolt connector? I don't see a sending unit that matches that for this tank?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
This tank is the correct one to fit into the vehicle. Typically though you have a lock ring style sending unit in that year. That style tank is not available. You have to get sending unit: 914850 then.

Is the tank painted? If not, what do you recommend? Thanks.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
These do come painted. There is no reason to coat the inside as long as you use non-ethanol fuel.

I need a fuel tank for a 1971 CJ with the 225 V6. This tank says it fits but looks nothing like mine. My fuel tank mounts between the frame at the rear of the vehicle. Do you have a tank for this?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
This is an under the seat mounted tank under driver. If you need a rear mounted tank please call us toll free and we can try to help. Ask for Mike M.

is this the front or rear tank or are they both the same.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
This is for the rear only. Thanks

What is the capacity of the fuel tank?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
They are 10.5 gallon. Just like original

What is the inside diameter? Thanks

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
4" ID like orignal

Do you recommend coating the inside of the tank if I plan on using modern- Ethanol infused petrol? If so, what do you recommend?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
I do not personally coat them. I recommend for your fuel system (fuel pump and carburetor) to use non-ethonal fuel though.

Just double checking, I have a 1965 Tuxedo park mk 4 CJ5 this should fit right?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, that is correct. This is proper tank under the seat.

I have a 1966 CJ 5 with the buick 225 v6 oddfire that has a return line from the fuel pump. From your pictures I cannot tell if this has a return line. The original had the intake and return lines on the sending unit. Thanks

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
The tank doesn't have a return line, your sending unit is what has it in it.

What brand of tank is this? Who makes it?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
These are a Rugged Ridge. They are the best manufacture of this tank and they are made to original spec.

Will this fit my 1968 cj5 with v6

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
If you have an under the seat tank yes it will.

Do you have a tank for a 71 cj5 that goes in the rear? thanks,

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Sorry, those are not currently reproduced.

Are these gas tanks coated on the inside?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
No, but they never were originally. Really if you keep them full of fuel or use non-ethanol brand you will never have a problem with tank for decades.

58 Willeys Cj5 serial# 5754878031 Fuel tank. Should it have a straight spout or the curved spout for for this model? Also 5 hole or 6 hole sender

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
6 hole sending unit. The spout would be as photo'd above. Our tank is make like original.

Installing new gas tank and sending unit, gage not registering.

Willys Tech:
I would check your wiring on the back of your gauge and especially your ground wire.

What are the actual dimensions of the tank?

Willys Tech:
They are made OEM spec. It is approx. 24.5 L x 18.75 W x 6.25 H.

I have a 1955 CJ5 the original tank has a vent tube on the filler neck I see this one does not. Will this cause problems?

Willys Tech:
Wanna take a photo of your old tank and email it to us? That sounds unoriginal to the year. These are made like original.

My 66 CJ-5 has one fuel tank under the driver's seat and another under the passenger's seat. Is this tank for either side? If not, is there a separate part number for the passenger side or can this fuel tank be modified? Thank you.

Willys Tech:
This is for drivers side only. Nobody makes a proper passenger side tank.

We have a 70 CJ-5, need a tank, but the sending unit in ours has the locking ring with tangs, not the 6-hole ring. Not finding that solution here.

Willys Tech:
Nobody makes that style tank. So all you need to do is get this tank and part number: 914850 sending unit to match and you will be all set.

Does the bottom outlet hole come with the fitting?

Willys Tech:
It will have the inlet ready to go. You just have to screw your old fuel line ine.

What would be the cost to Puerto Rico.?

Willys Tech:
Please email mike@kaiserwillys.com your full shipping address and we can quote you out.

The description lists this: Exact replacement with proper filler neck spout and 6 hole fuel tank sending unit. Does this mean when I purchase the steel gas tank that the filler neck spout and sending unit comes with it?

Willys Tech:
The filler spout is attached like original. The sending unit is sold separate. Your old 6 hole sending unit will mount in there properly.

Does the fuel tank have something to go under it when you put it in.

Willys Tech:
Yes, you can order either 12021.87 or B10331

This tank is the under seat model. Do you sell a conversion kit for a rear mounted tank?

Willys Tech:
Sorry, nothing like that really exists.

I'm putting a 55 fiberglass body on a M38A1 frame. Can I use this tank. Thanks

Willys Tech:
I dont really recomment the fiberglass bodies. As long as it is a properly made Cj-5 body this tank will be correct.

Online orders over 98.00 ship free. Is that also for this item...being oversized? Thanks.

Willys Tech:
This is an oversized item and has $17.99 shipping on it.

What type and size fitting connects to the outlet on the bottom of the tank?

Willys Tech:
Its standard 1/4 inverted flare like original.

I have a 1970 cj5 it has a locking ring on the tank (not screws) do you have a 10.5 gal. tank that excepts the locking ring/sending unit ?

Willys Tech:

Willys Tech:
The part number for it is: 663502

Does this thank include the suction tube assembly in the outlet? if not is it avalable?

Willys Tech:
It is a bottom feed tank just like original. It will be ready for install.

The sending unit, part # 914850, that you suggest be used with this tank, doesn't appear to have a fuel stand pipe on it. Does the tank have an outlet for fuel?

Willys Tech:
The 914850 is the proper one. The outlet for the fuel is on the bottom of the tank.
