Just wondering if anyone has had experience with these 70s tanks (the ones with the center mounting holes). I have one that was not installed properly and has cracked at the center hole. Someone tried to weld/braze it and made it worse. Debating if its worth fixing, or find another tank (with the two front and one rear tab mounting holes. Any ideas?

You're (maybe) going to use a centermount tank on a pre-'71 frame? Do I understand correctly?

My uninvited & gratuitous (but free!) opinion is, if the later tank presents a likely problem/time suck, find an older tank. This is strictly a "looks" consideration. To my mind, the Umberslade Hall stylists didn't get the proportions right; the late tanks look kind of bloated, or something.
