Tig a filler neck on the bung on the side. Cut the dip tube out of the end and weld a plate on . this plate can be a place to mount a screw in mechanical fuel gauge in addition to your fuel pickup. The pickup can also be placed in the bottom of the tank or in the end wherever you prefer. Mounts can be made out of 1/4 plate cut to a shape that you like as long as it provides support to at least a quarter of the diameter of the tank. T weld a 1" wide strap where the tank sets and put a fabric strip on it to cushion the tank. Hold downs can be of the same 1" strap, dog collars, leather belts or sequined spandex. Whatever you like as long as it is reasonably fuel resistant. A ground strap should be ran from the tank to the frame. Tanks are available in several sizes but the 15 1/2 gallon is the one usually used . Old barrel type kegs are availble from collectors and not very expensive.
