Oil tank mounts 61 FL

#1

Post by 66 Shovel-Pan » Mon Jan 23, 2012 2:52 am

I've been working on my 61 and I changed out the police tank for a horseshoe. I don't have any idea as to what the stock top rear oil tank mounts look like for the horseshoe. Does anyone have a picture? Seems like it would straps around the cross bar on the frame.
Thanks

I believe those are battery hold down tabs. There are no mounts at the top rear of the horseshoe oil tank. All the mounts are at the bottom (front and rear).

The rear mount for the horseshoe oil tank sits on the two square blocks above the swingarm pivot point. There are two threaded holes for it. It is a long "U" shaped bracket. The upper part of the tank has no bracket, the tabs in the tank are just to hold the battery tie down bolts.

The horseshoe tank bolts onto the same bracket as your police tank. The only difference is the oil tank mounting plate needs to be changed.
