What am I seeing in the last picture? Stock tanks DO NOT have a huge indention in them.


That's a later European style for a gas heater.







I just made that up (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Charcoal canisters seem to fail when gas tanks are always overly top up, forcing gas into the canister.

Well here's the original tank - with huge indentation.

And the new one for reference again.

A plastic version in the same material that the 911s have would be excellent!

A plastic version of the GT enduro tank would be even better.

Since my car is a 75, the canister is in the engine compartment. Looks perfect for that application.


No it is not. The bracket it does have is for the early steel expansion tank.
Technically only correct for a 1974 late. They will work on prior years but lack the charcoal canister brackets as noted.

Listed on the Pelican site at $204.

Out of stock till mid september.

Dansk really is hit and miss as far as fit and quality. I'm just thankful they are making parts for our 914's including heat exchangers.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) but remember the first batch of heat exchangers were junk.

Bumping an old thread because I just got one of these in for my 75'

It is identical the to the tank I have out of my 74'

Swirl pot is there, fittings are the same, brackets are the same, paint job is good.

For the $160 shipped I paid for it I would say Dansk is a suitable alternative to trying to rusty tanks.

Another resurrection bump. Can anyone say for sure that Dansk created an early model, and what brackets it has?

we actually sent Dansk two original tanks (early and late) so they could get the bracketing and the bottom cup correct. The first run of tanks the did before we sent them the originals were bad

That's fine as I'm deleting the charcoal canister (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

Deleting the charcoal canister.

No performance gains.
The constant smell of gas in your interior.

Why?

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif)

The weight of the charcoal canister is negligible, it keeps the gas smell in the car away, and there is no gain in performance. I don't see any downside in having it. Just replace the charcoal in the canister and put it back on the car.

The 4.0 currently has the canister, but it just goes to the air under the left fender. I am in process of hooking it back up. The 70 six was a Cali emissionis car, and had a canister from the factory, so I will be hooking it back up as soon as I get the lines off the parts car we bought to fix Betty's 914.

And if the tank doesn't have the mount for the canister, do what they did in 74, and put it in the engine compartment. Then run a small line up to the tank. Unless you are making a concours car, it doesn't matter where it is located.
