Fuel Tanks Available on Rock auto!
« on: July 12, 2022, 03:11:48 AM »
Just a heads up that there are new fuel tanks for sale on rock auto for eagles. I remember reading that no one made them anymore, looks like someone started too. Only 125 to 165!

I read that no one made them as well, but when I needed one a few years back the local parts stores had them available in the warehouse.  Here's the part numbers pulled from my AMC database, a.k.a. the notebook under my computer.  These were all good, available numbers:

Spectra: AMC1 (verified fit, I used one)
Precision: FT11
Dorman: 576-739

Now if they start reproducing tie rods and axle shafts too, we'll be in business.  Or I guess they will...
It's getting crowded down here:
1973 Ford Mustang "Rustang"
1984 AMC Eagle Sedan "IllEagle" 183k
1984 AMC Eagle Wagon "Eagle 2"
1996 Cadillac Eldorado 178k
1998 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 239k
2002 Cadillac Eldorado Doral Edition
2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 179k

Guessing these don't fit a Spirit or SX4 do they?

I'm pretty certain these are for the big Eagles and won't fit a Kammback, SX/4, or Spirit.
1981 Kammback 258 - "Pepe"
1980 Coupe 258 - "Ginger
1972 Gremlin X 304
1978 Gremlin 4 cyl 121 - sold
1964 TBird 390 - sold
