I hope you guys aren't getting tired of me asking questions. Its been years since I've "talked" with anyone about V-drives so I've got a lot of questions.
My 1972 project Stevens doesn't have tanks. I've looked at one of the hi-perf boat part websites and I couldn't believe how much a pair of aluminum cylindrical gas tanks cost !
Is there any reason why I couldn't use a pair of these 14 gal tanks for buggys?
DPP-1040E is a 14 gal tank for $156. A pair would be $312 for a total of 28 gals of gas. Seems like a fair deal to me. Is there any reason to stay away from buggy tanks?
BTW, I realize these tanks use a screw on cap on the filler neck whereas our boats typically use a 2" hose going up to a nice aluminum gas fill on the top.
