Some Squarebirds require the larger size tube. That's why Mac's sells them. I will look for a 5/8" tube part number later. - Dave
Last night, I promised a part number. Turns out Rock Auto sells this 5/8" steel tube for $3.61.

Do a Rock Auto search for: FOUR SEASONS 84716. Most people would never find it on their own unless they have a history of buying this part. I've purchased many. They also come too long so it's necessary to cut it down before pounding it in. - Dave

My 1st choice is using the OE tank.
The one that's in mine came out of a 60 HT. I want to say early-mid 80's.
And how are the hard lines from the tank up to the pump ?

Finally got things to the point where I could put fuel in the tank, and when I did, there was a drip from where the fuel fitting connects to the tank. I checked everything and found that it was the weld where the tank was leaking. Since I had the tank for several years, I had to eat it, and ended up taking it to a radiator shop to have the tank cleaned and repaired. Cost me another $70 to do that. Bottom line is verify, verify, verify, and it may pay to do a low pressure soap test on the tank prior to installing. Mine could have been the one in a thousand, but I got it!
As I said, just a heads up. If there is a leak, it is a lot easier to repair PRIOR to putting gas in the tank.

We used a Y-block fuel pump. Heard that the mounting and arm were identical to the FE. Maybe it was just luck. I'll bet Jopizz would know for sure !

You are correct. I believe the only difference is the location of the in and out ports. I'm sure I've done the same thing in the past.
