Volvo P1800E Fuel Tank

The tank is shown above with pump trial fitted. The tank is constructed from 3mm alloy sheet and has a capacity of 60 litres. The pump is from a (Australian) Ford Falcon EG station wagon which is made to operate at 35 PSI.

To make the volvo fuel gauge operate from the Ford sender unit I had to move the pink wire (centre top) from the bottom of the circuit board to the top, as while the gauge worked ok, it showed full when empty and vise versa.

The tank tack welded together waiting for ends to be fitted. Note the filler tube that will be inside the boot.
