I've started looking/collection some parts needed for the spring checkup of my 55, but I can't find a petrol tank. My tank is beyond repair. Not rusted through, but because the car's been standing still for 20+ years the condensation inside has rendered it useless! It looks like a coral reef or something inside!
Is there any tanks from other cars/makes that could fit with a little handywork? I've looked around for a parts car, but there isn't a DAF for sale here in Norway. Nor in Sweden.
Hi,my sons 44 had stood for 10+years and was as you describe your 55 tank.I used one of these sealants.It did a great job but I did put an inline filter between the tank and fuel pump[just in case]. starider.
