YES!! to my knowledge new cells don't have the welded tab anymore. No doubt it had something to do with cracking from body flex.

I only see 2 fittings on your cell, I'm guessing the supply is on the bottom.

The other supplies are on the other side. Here's a better pic. Also what material is best for fuel cell straps?

Took my right rear down and had it remounted to the rim... for free at the local Les Schwab tire.

Brazed all the holes in the sieve that I called a fuel tank before. It started leaking, so I swapped it with an OEM 20 gallon. Now the 20's skid is so rotted I'm going to swap the old 15 back in for a time so I can have a new stronger skid made for the plastic one. Wishing I could tuck it up in farther when I do though...
