Product Description

Premium Fuel Tank Kit With Drain Plug for 1965, 1966 and 1967 Mustangs.

Install this North American made 16 gallon fuel tank kit in your 1965-1967 Mustang today and rest easy knowing that the fuel you just purchased won’t be leaking out. This fuel tank has been pressure tested twice and is a direct replacement for the stock fuel tank with the correct 16 gallon capacity. The high quality fuel tank has a protective coating that fights against corrosion and rust.

Kit Includes:
- Premium Quality 16 Gallon Fuel Tank
- Scott Drake Sending Unit with Brass Float
- Correct Autolite Red Striped Fuel Filler Hose
- AMK 11-piece Mounting Hardware Kit
- Fuel Filler Pipe Gasket
- Fuel Tank Filler Screws

*Filer pipe is sold separately.

This fuel tank is a factory correct replacement for all 1965, 1966 and 1967 Mustangs, using the factory mounting holes. The tank is made using original dimensions, measuring 32-5/8" x 24 1/2" x 7", with the correct 16 gallon capacity. The premium fuel tank has a drain plug for easy drainage.

This Premium fuel tank kit comes with a high quality Scott Drake sending unit that is specific for the 16 gallon fuel tank allowing for accurate fuel level gauge operation. The fuel sending unit features a stainless steel construction with a 3/8" outlet tube and uses a brass float. A retaining ring, O-ring gasket and filter are included.

Connecting the original fuel filler pipe to the 16 Gallon Fuel Tank, is a durable, correct Autolite red striped fuel filler hose that is made from flexible, hard rubber. Replacing this hose is always recommended when installing a new fuel tank.

The best part about this fuel tank kit is the fact that everything bolts up to the factory locations using original hardware. If you don't have original hardware to use, AMK tank mounting hardware kit is included, which comes factory correct mounting hardware required to drop in the new fuel tank and secure it.

Finally, a new fuel filler pipe to body gasket is included to replace that worn out or missing original. The gasket is made out of cork and sits on the end of the filler pipe which meets the gas cap.

Tech Tip: if you install two gaskets on the filler pipe, it helps to move the gas cap away from the tail light panel which helps to keep the gas cap from scratching the paint when it is twisted during opening and closing.

Fuel Tank Kit Premium With Drain Plug 1965-1967 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal Excellent replacement kit with all they required parts, recommend the second fuel filler body gasket for the added space. Test the sending unit before you install it. 74-80 ohms empty, flip the tank and it should read around 10-14 ohms (tank full).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install recently purchased this kit to replace the tank on my 1967 mustang convertible. The only thing I wish the kit would have included was hard caulk or rubber seal to use between tank and trunk body. I had caulk at the house so I used it instead and it worked fine. The kit does bring everything else needed. It is a good deal when it is on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! I bought this to replace my original 48 year old gas tank that started leaking on my '67 Mustang hardtop. The fit was perfect and installation took about an hour. Don't forget to purchase the flexible caulk seal sold separately as you will need this. Watching the video ahead of time prepared us for everything we needed to do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fuel tank great, sending unit not so great Fuel tank fit great, sending unit fit and fuel line connected great, BUT the sending unit stud for the wiring is a 3/16 stud, and my 90degree connector is 1/8, so I bought a 90degree connector from this site (CJ Pony Parts) and that to is 1/8. So I cant use the sending unit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit Great kit, just wish with a premium kit it would have included the seal strips for the tank, and the original style clamps for the filler hose. Great quality parts for what was included. Just not a complete kit.

Can this kit be obtained with a 5/16" fuel sending unit instead of 3/8? Is the price the same?

Asked by: alw40
Unfortunately, we don't have the kit bundled in a way to allow for swapping of parts. You can order each of the components separately, however. The price might be a bit higher, but should be close, as the 5/16-inch fuel sending units tend to be cheaper.

Fuel Tank Kit Premium With Drain Plug 1965-1967 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: There's nothing worse than spending 60 bucks to fill up your tank, only to find gas dripping out from underneath your car. With the cost of fuel these days, there is no better time to replace that rusted, leaking tank. Today we're going to show you how to install a new tank using this '66 Mustang Convertible.

This is our standard fuel tank kit for the '65 through '68 Mustang. It includes the tank, sending unit with the correct brass float, mounting hardware, filler hose and the filler pipe gasket.

For this installation you will need a flat blade screwdriver, Philips screwdriver, hammer, 3/8-inch ratchet, 1/2-inch socket, 3/8-inch socket, 1/4-inch ratchet, 7/16-inch socket, 5/16-inch socket, short extension, wire cutters, pry bar, 3/8-inch open-end wrench, scraper, safety glasses and a lift or jack and jack stands.

As you can see, the tank in our '66 has a nice big dent in it. It's due for replacement. The first step is going to be to drain the fuel. There is a couple ways you can do this. Drain it either from your sending unit, or if the tank has a drain, you'll want to use that. The best way to drain it? Take your car for a drive. If it's not drivable, either one of these ways will work.

The last step before removing the fuel tank from above is to disconnect the sending unit. You're going to pull the sending unit wire off the stud and then you'll want to disconnect the hose. We have the original stock crimp-clamps, which are one-time only and so you'll want to cut that off. Keep your pan handy as you may still have a little fuel come out of it. Now, we are ready to move inside the trunk. After you drain the tank, you'll want to clear your trunk out and remove the bolts that are holding the tank in place. Now, we're going to loosen the two screws the hold the filler pipe seal to the tank and to the filler pipe.

Now, we're going to disconnect our filler pipe. To remove the filler pipe you have to take the gas cap off. There are four bolts in the front here and there is on the back that we have to get off first. You'll want to pull the filler hose off the tank by twisting the whole assembly. Twist the hose off the pipe and pull out your filler. You'll be reusing the filler tube with your new tank. We include a new hose and also a new gasket so you can throw both of those away. Now, we are ready to remove the tank from the car itself.

Even though the hardware is removed there is still some seal holding it in place. We're going to start with a pry bar and see if we can get it loose. If you have trouble getting it off with a pry bar, a jack underneath the car forcing it up will usually do the trick as well. We are going to be installing new sealant with the new tank and so we want to get the surface as clean as possible and scrape off the old excess sealant. Once you've finished cleaning the original sealant off the trunk you will probably have a couple areas that are bare metal. We recommend a coat of primer before you install the new tank. Once you're finished with the primer, it usually only takes about 5-10 minutes to set up and then we can get in to installing our tank. I will put some strip caulk around the outside edge before we install the new tank. This will replicate the OEM caulking. Make sure not to leave any gaps in the corners; you want to seal all the way around. Before the tank goes back in the car, you want to test your sending unit; whether it's the original or a new one, you will still need to test it before you put it on the car.

You will use your multimeter set on ohms to test your sending unit. You want to ground it anywhere on the chassis, push the positive to the stud. You should see somewhere between 70 and 80 ohms, which is empty. As the flow goes up, that number is going to decrease, getting roughly to 8-10 by the time the tank would be full. As you can see, our sending unit is working properly.

Once you have tested your sending unit and you know it's good, we are ready to install it. The first step is to install this ring. There is a groove that it goes in to. I will put the float in at an angle first and make sure that the stud is at the bottom and put the ring on. I get about _ turn by hand. I will use a hammer to push it on the rest of the way. If you are ever working with a sending unit that has fuel involved, you'll want to use a brass punch. Since everything is new here a flathead screwdriver and hammer will work fine. Now, we're ready to install our tank.

The tank is going to go in the same way the old one came out. Line up the holes and grab our new hardware. Right now, we're going to put the fuel filler hose on. It goes over the tank. Slide it down and put the clamp on, but we're not going to tighten it down just yet. Put another one over here. Now we will install the fuel filler pipe. The new gasket comes with it, so make sure that you put it on before you put the pipe in. Once you install the filler pipe, your hose plants in place and we will tighten them back down. Now, we will reinstall our gas cap. Line the gasket up with the holes. The last step is to connect the sending unit. Make sure that you grab a new hose clamp to replace the one we took off. Now, our installation is finished. Once you're finished with the install you'll want to put some fresh fuel in the tank and check everything for leaks before you take it for a test drive. Installation should only take you for about an hour so you'll be back on the road in no time.
