can't believe this 2 1/2 days from bloomington and my tank is leaking as far as I can see its not a hose !! was thinking it was a vent hose leaking !!
or even the old rubber hose that goes to the steel one !!

question can i use all the older parts like gas tank senders ??? [ the float }what the hell its called never changed a tank in a c 3 ever !

changing the tank

I just pulled the tank from our C3, cleaned it, and put it back. Pretty straight forward. First get all the fuel out (siphon). Then the fuel line can be removed (held on by a slip ring and a rubber gasket - you might need a new rubber gasket where the fuel sending unit rests against the tank). Theres 4 bolts that hold the straps, and a cross member held on by two bolts. Take em all out. Wiggle the tank around and it'll drop out.
