Stick with the AE tank for now, I have 2 and have had no issues with either. If you have to, switch when you are done. I think I may have read that some HB guys had some issues with some D8T tanks but I could be wrong.

It would lean out once the fuel went below the seem. Actually I bought one a couple weekends ago and it was bad out of the bag so I took a soldering iron to the seem to try to seal it up better by melting it. We'll see if it works. but that was the first one in a looonnnng time for me.

TC5man your truck is perfect man!!! Put it together and run it! Don't worry about anything!

Ty Tessman has mods for the D8 and D8T tanks on his website. It's mainly on the lines going in the tank because they can fail. Even on his HB stuff.

Bugman,

Those pics you linked up are what I did to my chassis. Not too hard to do. Went with the HB tank and haven't had issues.

thanks for the kind words king. We look forward to running and dialing in our new ae rides. Should be here end of next week.
Regarding the tank, I (or no one else) actually said there was a tank issue, just questions about what others used and how they mounted up and final results, that's all....Our stuff will be built all original. Then if a problem arises in testing, I'll address it accordingly. There is no need to frankenstein up your ride before you even know how it performs in stock trim, right?

ok, i did page 10 bag D and i inserted the steering block bushings into the steering blocks and put locktite on the screws that go into the steering knockles .

heres, my question it show that the steering block bushings go into the steering blocks with the trangle facing up so when i was tightening them down did did the bushings key into the blocks right ?

the screws did tighten all the way and it was smooth .

You are correct. The triangles key into the steering knuckle. Sounds like you got it right, everything should be smooth with no binding

ok, but i mounted the steering block nushings where the triangle is upwards like the picture shows i must of did it right because theres no binding at all and smooth.

so with the triangle facing upwards into the block it stills locked into the steering knuckle ?
