  1. I was actually able to buy a new one from here: https://www.mitsubishipartswarehouse.com/oem-parts/mitsubishi-fuel-pump-tank-seal-mb129548 It actually came in. This was a couple weeks ago.
  2. Thanks for the response, very helpful. Welding is not something I can do at this time (plus no equipment anyways). Always something I wanted to learn on a basic level though for this type of stuff though. So the JBWeld is probably the way to go. I'll adhere the box directly to the tank. I can't see a reason why I'd ever need to remove it.
  3. So I just found out something. I had my tank sent out to get sandblasted and coated with rust. When I first got it back, everything looked relatively in tact, but I guess I wasn't looking close enough. 1. I'm missing the middle hard line piece (the intermediary between the tank in/out and the black u shaped box). I assume that isn't that big of a deal, I can just extend the hose so it's just a single run instead of split with that hardline. 2. I'm also missing the brackets that hold the tank separator (or whatever the u shaped black piece is) in place. As it stands, I don't actually have anywhere to screw it in. This is slightly more concerning...... Any ideas on what to do with attaching the black piece?
  4. Hey, putting together my fuel tank right now. Wondering if anyone still has a top down view of the tank that I can use as a reference. I find the manual diagrams hard to read, so I've been using images I've found on here for sanity checks...except the ones I have saved are gone now
  5. Kev this is much appreciated! Your tutorials are a life saver.
  6. Yep, Costco seems to be the way to go. They have the new TL series out which adds 3" to the height. Dunno if they are worth the cost premium. They are not at costco yet from what I saw.
  7. Thank you guys for the replies, I think I'm gonna get some this Christmas then.
  8. Your tutorials are gonna be sorely missed...I relied on your throttle body tutorial and your tank dropping info in your resto thread. Gotta trudge forward though, gotta get my car running soon lol.
  9. OH, I understand now haha. Thanks for the help again. Ordering new hardware as we speak, so this is all very helpful.
  10. You're gonna have to excuse me, and bear with me here lol. I'm a little confused and I've been learning everything as I go, so some phrases I still don't understand. So the nuts are m10. What is the 17mm hex you are referring to? A 17mm hex head?
  11. Wow you're right haha. It's coming back to me now. That is why they wouldn't show up in the parts manual lmao. This is what not being next to your car does. Again, thanks for the help. The nuts are m17 though? That's a lot bigger than I would have imagined....where do you buy m17 nuts from anyways? lol.
  12. A lot of people like to use the early 90s era Mitsubishi double din units (forgot the exact models, might be the 1g DSMs that Kev mentioned) People think they fit the car better (looks wise), while providing an aux jack so you still have some modern luxury.
  13. Yep, and it didn't dawn on me until I made a topic in Just Plain BS and I can't reply to it yet 😅
