  • What size gas tank

    On the 64 Daytona, how may gallons of gas should it hold?

    Thanks,

    18 U.S., 15 Imperial, 68 Litre.? I think all Lark types were the same?

      Thanks....Now I'm thinking the sending unit/or gauge is faulty.

        What's going on? Gage works? Sending unit works but inaccurate?

          I fill it up and it reads full, but then it heads south to about
          1/2 real quick were it stays before it gradually falls. When I
          refill around a 1/4 tank, I can only get about 8 gallons in
          before it spils out the back side. So obviously there is alot
          more in the the tank than the gage would make me think.
          When she got here from GA. the gage read about an 1/8
          and didn't even come close to putting in 14 to 18 gallons.
          Any ideas?

            Bad cork float on the sending unit. The alcohol in the new fuel has washed off all of the lacquer.
