    Yamaha Fuel Tank Conversion

    Just finished having my new Yamaha Fuel Tank Conversion Fabbed up. Top plate is threaded for breather, electrics, fuel return and fuel supply. Pump is clamped at the bottom and is adjustable to get the pick up as close to the bottom of the tank as possible. The ring with the bolts goes in the tank and has a sealing ring and then the top is secured with another seal on the outside of the tank. Should work mint.

    how are you keeping the inside ring up to the bottom of the tank when you install or remove the pickup assy? is it going to be held up with some flush countersunk rivets? im working on making a 787 fuel injected and in a hx hull. so i have to make my own sender fuel pump hanger like you have.

    With all the bolts and the holes in the plastic tank being the same size the ring holds itself in the tank. It is quite tight in fact! I also used nitrile rubber gaskets cut buy hand. You shouldn't need to hold it in there with anything. Good luck.

    thanks, as you there is soo much that goes into any type of conversion. little things you don't think of or different ways to do things. your pump setup looks really nice and prety simple, not just to integrate a fuel sending unit.

    I have now added the factory fuel level sender unit. I cut the aluminium plate from the OEM fuel pick up and mounted it inside my bracket. Bent the float rod to suit. I now have at least accurate fuel level from 3/4 tank down to empty and one more reason not to get an alarm go off.
