Okay, I got a good gastank off my parts 83L. Pulled the tank from my 82P, which leaks from the seam (difficult to seal). The connectors and hoses were different, so I pulled the six or seven screws from the cap and switched them over, so now the old cap is in the new tank. The 83L had IN-TANK pump, my 82 has OUT-OF-TANK pump. The tanks APPEAR to be the same size, and aside from the location of the pump, everything seems to be identical (now that I have switched caps). Everything hooked up fine, guage works, etc, no leaks. I CAN NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME STRAP THE DAMN THING BACK UP!! I tried everything! No matter what happens, I am still about 1/2 to 1 inch short. Is there a trick to it, or are the 82 and 83 tanks a different size? Im going back outside now to beat on it some more, hopefully someone will have some insigt. Thanks!!
