S1 Tank?
« on: 01 Oct 2012 at 21:14 »
To All,

I have a basket case of a tank which I believe to be an S1 tank.

The tank is

9.75" wide (at the widest point)
3.75" high
25.25" in length. (same as the normal 2 3/4 flat tank for a TS etc.)

The gear selector hole lines up with the gear change bracket on the frame. It appears I am answering my own question but I want to be sure before I go and get the tank rebuilt.

I have attached a couple of photos for information. Can someone please confirm that this is a S1 tank. (or close to)

Thanks

Rob

Rob,

Just been to the shed and measured my tank and it measured 10 across the tank at the front mounting holes and 7 across the tank at the rear mounting holes. The overall length would be 28. It is a much bigger tank than the TS.

My original tank was forwarded to Eric Bourne in Sydney for a pattern for his S1 not sure of his progress but if unsuccessful you can come my way and take some measurements.

regards Alan

Alan,

thanks.

The tank is the same length as a TS (I must have typed the wrong measurement, should be 28.25"). A TS tank fits nicely in the frame so I am confident that length is correct.

Your width measurements match to what I have so it must be a S1 tank albeit a wreck, but good enough to use the fittings and get a replica made.
