Fuel Tank Dimensions 1986 Outrage 18

Postby Don SSDD » Wed Sep 27, 2017 5:40 pm

What are the dimensions of the original [fuel] tank [for a 1986 Outrage 18]?

What is the depth?

I need a new mechanical fuel tank gauge. Mine has a five-bolt flange on the tank. I believe some have a 4 bolt.

Thanks,
Don

Don -

E-components carries the OEM gauge and arm.

Thanks. E-Components site has no specifics that I could see, the old post said it was part #5-062B, I could not find it on the site or via a Google search.

Don,

I'm pretty sure you're the same Don from Nova Scotia that placed an order from us a week or so ago but if not don't hesitate to call or write.

Phil-
Thank you for thinking of us. After nearly 20 years in business we're finally updating our website and adding secure online ordering capabilities. We have some new products to offer including exact OEM replacements of the original Rochester Gauges for vintage Whalers, right down to the part numbers engraved in the gauge head.
