Is the engine a runner? Any history on it? You've probably read about the T4 issues with valve seats & head cracks?

Pulled a compression check on it yet?

sorry been busy , just getting back to normal.
I built a inch and half angel iron(square of course) and also put a rubber pad around the inside of the angel iron, so it wont rub a hole in the tank. As far as the neck i went to u pic um parts and took the gas filler tube and flange from a chevy s10, cut it to the length then mounted the gas cap to the flange.
The gas tank angel iron is adhered to the firewall and also the flat part of the pan,
