I always replace the plastic tank with those aluminum ones from comet. The sight glass is tygon fuel tubing and doesn’t leak just leave it a little long if you replace it because they shrink up a tiny bit. Put the mounting bolts up from the bottom and double nut so you don’t crush the rubber grommets and you’ll have a nice shock mounted tank. I also get one of those fuel nipples with a flange and put it in the cap then a small fuel filter on top keeps fuel from splashing. You’ll need a long neck funnel to fill the tank on certain ones if the steering shaft is in the way.

Hope that helps,
