Just a ? I have a '67 hornet frame and have a 2 gallon Lightning steel tank. The bracket that holds the tank to the frame seems to be too small to fit over the extension on the frame (underneath gastank). Was there a different bracket for the hornet. I was using a bracket for the '68 Lightning. Thanks for the info. Steve in Ohio
Steve, when you say the bracket won't fit over the pin, do you mean the inner diameter of the bracket is too small? The pins on all the A65 frames I have look the same, somewhere around 5/16" to 3/8" in diameter. The fuel tank brackets I have (for Lightning/Tbolt tanks), are considerably larger than the pin in inner diameter, and require a rubber bushing to take up the play. Without the bushing, the bracket tubing is AT LEAST 1/2" in inside diameter.
Mark has given you the info you need. I use a piece of fuel line over the pin for the bracket. The bracket also seems to not fully fit up over the pin. And make sure your fuel tank rubbers are located correctly, it will affect how the bracket lines up with the pin.

I must have the tank mounting rubbers in the wrong place because they hold the tank too far to connect with the bracket. I will try to get the placement better. These are new rubber mounts. Thanks, Steve in Ohio
