63 gas tank question.

Post by musicnbikes » Sat Jan 22, 2011 5:22 pm

Hello guys, I am tearing into my 63 panhead, since it has been discovered that a rod is broken, and I am going to have to take the motor out.
My question is that one of my tanks appears to be a little shallower on the bottom than the other. Is this indicative of a repro tank? I do not see any numbers on either tank. The right tank is the smaller one. I do not know if they are supposed to be the exact same size or not. Any and all info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The two sides are different, they are not mirror images of one another. The right side is sort of flat in the depression, the left side just has a rounded indentation.
