Title: Is this the right tank for a 67 Spitfire?
Post by: NickM on 07 November, 2017, 21:09:03
I have the part number but not the knowledge or experience with BSA's. After searching the planet for a tank, i'm gonna have to take a punt on India. This one looks fairly decent given the seller feedback: Is this the right tank for a 67 Spitfire? (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BSA-A65-SPITFIRE-4-GALLON-RAW-PETROL-TANK-WITH-CAP-BRAND-NEW/291979640724?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D48785%26meid%3D497e04b2d3a6407fb99f0b565a2993e7%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D322833784107&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851)

If I remember correctly, my spit tank was 5 gallon (imperial).

Thanks for the reply ROYC. Yes, I have read that they changed to 5 gallon tanks in 67 but I've never seen any for sale. I'll keep looking.

That's perfect ROYC, Thanks. I'll contact the Australian one........the Holtworks one is a bit pricey for me.
