I'm having to replace the original fuel tank on my 1973 TR6. Someone in the past tried coating the tank, but only coated it about 75% of the way up the sides and nothing on the top. I found about 1/4 inches of rust particles on the bottom. There is severe corrosion on the inside top and bottom outside in one area about 3 - 4 inches X 10 inches. I may have decided to go with a Moss steel tank to stay original looking. I considered a Moss aluminum tank, but was concerned from two points. In an earlier post, someone complained about the Moss aluminum tank precluding the carrying of his spare tire/wheel. http://www.triumphexp.com/phorum/read.php?2,1299954,page=2 . See post #22. I don't understand how the Moss aluminum fuel tank could interfere with the installation of the spare, but that is what he stated.
The second question I have concerns the shape of the Moss aluminum fuel tank. I understand the Moss steel tank looks original. What does the Moss aluminum tank look like? I actually prefer an aluminum tank if it looks original and doesn't interfere with the spare since the aluminum tank would likely outlast me.
