97+ tank into a 95 or older xj?

for obvious reasons the newer tanks are plastic, vs the older rusty metal ones.

can I use the 97 + pump, is the pump the same? should I keep my 93 and 95 pumps as spares?

the sending unit on the 97 will work with the 95 gauges?

ect ect? ?

I believe someone over on NAXJA was able to get the newer tank on but it would never read right. Something about the systems being completely different.

I know its not too much help but you might want to search over there for some additional info.

The 97+ tanks have an internal regulator and one line to the fuel rail. The earlier ones had two lines, one being a return line from the regulator at the fuel rail. It would just be easier and better to use the proper tank.

the proper tanks suck tho. I've had 2 with holes in them already.
I guess its back to looking for a stock tank.

Someone want to buy a 97 + tank?
