Fuel Tank Interchange

Hi, would 68-72 A-body or 77-96 B-body fuel tanks fit on a 73-77?

I'm not sure, since the 73 Monte tank is different from 74-77, I'm sure same goes for other A-bodies as well. New tanks run about $150 or so, I'm about to drop one out of a 75 Monte to check it for gunked up old fuel.

It may not even be that simple. My Hollander Interchange manual shows the same tank for '71/'72, but a different tank for every year of Monte Carlo '73 thru '75; with '76/'77 sharing the same one. Pretty much the same story with Chevelles/Malibus with El Caminos and station wagons having different tanks, yet. For Cutlass and Century, they even differentiate between 2-dr and 4-drs during the '76/'77 model year. Haven't the slightest idea what the differences would be; other than maybe capacity and perhaps the baffle (or, lack thereof) inside the filler neck.

Hollander book I have only goes to '81 and they list different tanks than any of the "A" bodies for the various "G" bodies.

the tank (without fill neck) it self is the same 73-77. (PER MONTES)
73 neck is by itself.

74 neck has a big filler hole (reg gas).

75 is the same neck as 74 but has a small filler hole (unleaded gas) with a flapper door.

76 and 77 are the same necks with small hole (unleaded gas) and have filler flapper doors.


reg gas nozzles were about an inch wide.
un-lead gas nozzles are about 3/4. (size we have today)

Is there any way to siphon out the gas in a 74 model thru the filler neck? I tried running a rubber hose down the neck to get out old gas, but could not get it down the filler neck for some reason. I wish my tank had a petcock on the bottom so it w3ould be easy to drain out the gas. JB

You should be able to siphon thru the neck, but if not - as easy as these tanks are to drop (barring rusty bolts), you can drop the tank using a jack, then siphon from the top once the sending unit is removed. Tranny jack works real nice.

Its basic hardware, you can most likely find the same stuff or suitable replacements at an Ace Hardware.

Are you talking about the two rear mtg brackets that the straps connect to? Probably just as easy to fabricate a couple.
