Gen 2.5 fuel tank and charcoal canister needed
« on: July 15, 2017, 11:19:12 AM »
Just bought a 99 Montero for my son. The fuel tank is collapsed and leaking (charcoal canister is really heavy, looks like is saturated with either water or fuel) I'm calling salvage yards in Phoenix AZ, but haven't found one yet. If anybody has one or knows where to get one please let me know.

I got this reply from the expedition forum this morning :"Most of the Az Montero guys left this forum and are on https://www.adventuredrivendesign.com/forums/index.php I know there is a Gen 2.5 Charcoal canister over at my friends house, as far as the tank goes there is a fresh '97 SR which will have the same tank over in a Phoenix yard as of two days ago it was fresh inventory. I don't know the exact location of either of these things but RyanY knows where the '97 is and PA_JERO would be the guy to ask about the charcoal canister."

Pull-N-Save in glendale has a 97, last I heard it was hardly touched. Might be able to get both items there.

6841 W Northern Ave, Glendale, AZ 85303

I do have a charcoal canister but I have left town for the next week. Best bet could be the salvage yard.

Yes, got it from James. Went to Pull-N-Save in Glendale and pulled the charcoal canister from the 97SR, but the fuel tank had been punctured already. I'll keep looking, if anybody finds one please let me know.

I have a gen 2.5 tank you can have,  it's got a hole in it plugged up with JB Weld (how I got it) but I'm guessing if you fill the tank with water and wash it out it can be brazed or welded.

There is a 97 SR that I'm going to visit for other things tomorrow. Is this tank the same?

Yes the tank is the same. Where is that 97?

I'll take it. I called around and found a shop near downtown Phoenix that can repair it. I'm in Tempe, let me Know when I can pick it up. Thank you.
