Questions: I have a m38 and we ordered a new gas tank for it. Now with the gas tank installed the drivers seat touches the gas tank. Is this normal or do I need some bushings of some sort to go under rear leg

Questions: My Jeep has a sediment trap in fuel line. Does that have a replacement filter that is used or just clean it out. (As you can see I haven't opened it as yet, but looks quite dirty.

Depends on the style it is. You would have to inspect.

Questions: Will this tank fit / work for a '55 CJ5 under the seat installation? I like the large mouth design and the look much better than the small spout of the CJ5. Also think it would be better for filling the tank with a Jerry can:-)
Question By: Rich on Jan 1 1970 12:00 AM
If you have a CJ-5 you really need to use part number: 912008. This is a totally different tank specific for the M38.

Questions: I have 1953 m38a1 which I am converting to 12 volts I need a fuel tank. Which tank can I use being that it has to be12 volts the tank that I have is no good so I would like to use a tank that is made out of plastic which tank can I use to replace the original one even if I have to modify it. I would need a 12 volt pick up system and sending unit.
Question By: Anonymous on Jan 1 1970 12:00 AM
If you have an M38A1 you need to stick with the M38A1 tank part number: 805605 and use part number:640694 for the sendig unit for 12 volt. It will screw right in. You may want to extend its arm a bit to read fully due to the M38A1's well.
