    97 mk viii fuel tank

    Apparently the fuel pump assy is also obsolete. Which i was going to put a bigger unit in anyway. I have heard soooo many different versions as to what pump to use. Looks like 96-98 Cobra is the closest, but still needs modifications to fit.

    97 mk viii fuel tank

    What's holding the fuel tank besides the 2 tank straps? They are off, the trans jack has about a 2" gap under the tank, but that dam thing will not move. It's like it is glued to the floor or there is more than the 2 straps holding it in. It is solid enough i would not be afraid to drive it...
