Unless Rick' tank is narrowed I don't think it will fit. You move the springs in in the rear,
the tank needs to be cut.

Ricks has a narrowed tank for minitubs. Give them a call.

Here's the deal:
If you buy the way overpriced offset shackles w/ 1.75" offset, you'll have to notch the tank.

I made my own shackles, @ 1.1" offset.
That is about the max you can go and use the stock tank. I did reverse the shackle bolt direction and carefully centered the tank. It works.

The springs are moved inboard 1" each side. GLA mini tubs, did not notch the frame.
All this is on a '69.

Chops, pics please.
kevmac, check out the vaporworx (sp?) tanks. Carl Cassanova is part of that whole deal so you may be able to get info from him or search it at pro-touring. They run about $800 I think and are set up for autox, prolly narrowed.

The Vaporworx tanks are killer, but they are $1600+ depending upon the pump module you need.

I have a Rick's in my mini tubbed 67 with a 4 link. You need narrowed and notched with the 4 link to clear exhaust and it probably wouldn't hurt with a leaf car either.

Got my tank from Ricks this week. Very nice. Hate to cover it up. It has the walbro 340 and was wondering could I just use the extra light wire(dark blue on am autowire) to hook it up or need a relay? thanx
