Mine has a drain plug on the passenger's side towards the front. Standard plumbing part, if it is rounded off (square head).

If it was to be used for drag racing then the part about the two lines in the rear makes sense.

I guess the question might be: on the lower, left, front side of the tank do you see any remnants of a fitting or line? That would have been the original.

You should have a sending unit easily accessible from the middle of the trunk, and easy to remove, which would let you peek inside. Cleaning the ground and the rheostat wouldn't be a bad thing to do.

Not sure what Hoffa wore for jewelry so keep an eye out...

Default Gas line ...

that 460 is going to want a 3/8" supply line at w.o.t.. Not sure exactly what you have now (most are 5/16")but make sure it's at least 3/8 all the way to the carb. Any reduction in size in the line effectively reduces the line to that size(this includes fuelpump and carb fittings). Mike

Yeah...the previous owner(s) had it plumbed properly.

No doubt about it....the 460 is a gas-guzzling pig, especially when paired up with the 4.11 gears.

I just need to figure out a way to use "all" the fuel tank's capacity.

An in-line fuel pressure gauge might not be a bad idea for you... under the hood. They are about $15 from people like Summit Racing.
