    I recently purchased a 87 chevy 1 ton and I'm trying to find some parts for it. The brackets including the straps for my driver side saddle fuel tank need to be replaced does anyone know where I can get them re-manufactored or original. thanks

    Not sure, would coat hanger wire work?
    Also try ebay, and on that note maybe try that first.

    You need the felt tape as well.

    These were so commonly failing, I'm sure just about any auto parts store can set you up with either.

    Check your tank around the strap area. They were prone to rust and leak in this area.

    I checked LMC but they just seem to sell the straps for the brackets not the actual brackets themselfs. I'm going to try and see if earlyer years had the same brackets and see if they sell those on LMC. thanks for the help guys

    Thanks TLS I just shot they and email to find out how much shipping would be. I spoke with a junk yard yestrday and they wanted well over $100 for used brackets.
