990 Tanks on 950?

I've seen a few things on 950 tanks on 990's with some cutting for the fuel pump, but what about 990 tanks on a 950? The only solution I currently know of, at least I think, is grabbing a block off plate from a set of Safari tanks.

First question, is there a soruce for these plates and/or does anyone have one laying around they didn't use can would like to part with.

Second, any other known ways to get the 990's to work on 950's?

Block off plate is a must for obvious reasons

No too hard to make if you have a fuel pump to make the template but make sure you use viton for the gasket.

Gasket that comes with safari plate does not seem to be up for the task in the long term, after a couple of years I dont think I was far from a leak:




sorry for bad picture

Good call on the Viton gasket, a must when dealing with gasoline.

Anyone have an old fuel pump lying around I could use for template or have dimensions.

Or better yet, any 990 Safari owners still have the extra plate ?(did they come with plug or do you order extra?) If the latter anyone know of a source?

Think plate was a separate item but not sure.

Was able to source one through this great site for cheap, its not in use right now, a bit reluctant to give it up since I have 990 tanks laying around and several 950s and should one tank there fail plate will be needed.

And Im not sure were it ended up? Will try to remember to take a look for it next time I visit my storage, could at least measure and give detailed pictures.

Think CJ did a plate that went inside hole and used an O-ring also similar to what is in place if installing the pump, not sure if that made it into production or if it was a one off ...or if it was someone else, bad memory.

You could ask CJdesigns for details/prices.
Cheers

Might also try contacting them at http://safaritanksusa.com/index.php?cPath=29_35
And see if they will sell you the block off separately

I once had a set of the safari tanks and bought the block off plate separately.
About AU$30 IIRC
