Early bay fuel tanks in splits

Post by passion4 »

I know the one year only cross over year August >71 ones (fitted top pic), but do the early 68-72 ones also fit and have a similar capacity?

Yeah that's the one I previously had, just wondering if the lower one 68-72 fits and has a similar capacity? Not sure of the two which is easier to come by these days!?

Trouble is not sure if the early ones fit straight in?
