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?

I finally got around to doing the Blazer blower motor upgrade. A lot easier than I thought.

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...
