  • Gas tank replacement question.

    I am replacing the gas tank on my station wagon and after I dropped the old tank, I noticed a large piece of rubber or foam of some sort that is about 4" wide and runs down the center of the old tank, front to rear. The replacement tank I have does not have this strip of material on it. Does anyone know what this is for, and is it necessary? If so, what can I use as a substitute material.

    Thanks in advance,

    Scott

    A: It keeps the tank from contacting the trunk floor and insulates it from noise transmission. All Studes (were supposed to) have it.

    B: Armaflex (use google)

      My '53 had a felt pad there... still has it as I couldn't find a suitable replacement.

        Duane,
        A piece of outdoor carpet will work. Use the piece left over from doing your window channels. I found it a Home Depot, they sell it by the running foot.
