I am getting ready to work on fue system om my 1938 chevy. I was wondering if i would be better off putting a stock gas tank or a fuel cell in, which wouldbe mounted in the stock location. Does anyone have any pros or cons on this subject? Thank you all.

If it were mine, I'd install the stock size and shape tank back in there. I'd run a 1/2" supply line and a 1/2" return line. You can use the return line in the event you need to reduce pressure to prevent overpowering the needle and seat in the carb (if you are planning to use a carb). Use a regulator that has a "return to the tank" port on it. Use 5 lbs max for a Carter AFB, Edelbrock Performer and Rochester Quadrajet. Use 6 lbs max for a Holley. I'm sure you can find several sources for a stock type tank, but just to get you started, here's a 17 gallon poly unit from Parr Automotive.... http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?parta~partsort
