Well, that's the part number Spectra stamped on the set they made for me.


Look at that. They finally came through. Egads.

Yes. As a courtesy to road kill everywhere, the last thing they see needn't be rusty wagon tank straps. tongue

The only thing I have to worry about is wearing mine out going in and out of my dad's driveway. It is nice to know that I am not going to have to drag them out from under junkyard wagons any more.

Yep,I agree,I havent crawled around junkyards for some time,but when I go to change my fuel pump
if my tank straps look marginal ,I will be getting a set from amazon. Seems like I always ended up
getting stung by bees when I went tramping around junk yards. ed

Well, I replaced the tank straps e few weeks back, and now there is a problem. I can't fill her up till full anymore. It looks like  there is a gallon or 2-3 missing, and after refuelling the fuel gauge doesn't go any futher than between full and 3/4. (do i still make any sense?)
I had the tank on stands, so it wasn't dropped but putting on the straps was very tight.
Ideas, anyone?

Chances are when the sender mechanism was inserted that it was twisted or bent thereby giving you false readings.

Did you measure the new straps and compare them to the old ones? My first suspect is the straps are compressing the plastic tank a little to much considering you stated putting them on was "very tight". If this is the case I would think the length of the straps are correct but the risers, or the parts that curve around the tank and mount to the frame are shorter.

Yes, i compared them with the old ones. I put her on stands yesterday and i don't see any signs of "compression". I even compared it with different pics i found on the forum.

Stingroo sent an OEM set to the manufacturer for them to copy. They should be exactly the same as the OEM parts.

I ordered one set of e-bay and then called the parts house I deal with,as they carry Spectra radiators and gave them the 185 number. Next day they delivered them for 45.70. I figured with 3 wagons, it wouldn't hurt to have a spare set. I might actually order another one , so everyone has a new set!
