    I will be replacing the gas tank in the 67 Dart in the near future. Any thoughts on the $85 tanks hawked on eBay? Good? Bad?

      If they are Spectra, they are not from China. They are made in Canada on North American soil. If the ones you are looking at are Chinese tanks, I'll be damned if I would get one when the Spectra tanks can be had usually for a tick over 100 bucks.

        The one I got for my 75 Ford F250 fit like a glove. It's also twice the capacity of the original tank. I have sold a number of them at work and gotten zero complaints.

          They have a lousy search engine. How did u find the straps and sending unit? Found the tank after long search. Did the tank come with the O ring or didcha hafta buy separately?

          If you want to save $0.05 then go for it . If you want a tank that works , get one from a responsible dealer . Most replacement tanks are just a tick over $100.00. Your decision.

          Just installed a Spectra tank and am satisfied. I got the filler grommet from Filler Neck Supply. The sending unit sealed OK, but the ring must be installed just right.
