good help dave one day i will b geting a fuel cell in my rs but the guy at the speed shop said i dont need one. i have a 383 in my rs but i will get on one day and maybe one day we can race only on the streets good help
theres not too much to detail really. the cap is usually either black or red with a silver colored retaining ring around it. the cells are typically black plastic these days, but were also molded in red and in a few cases a semi-translucent off white plastic. the straps should be made from steel or maybe aluminum. the top of the cell should have a vent and a return line fitting. the bottom should have 2 outlet fittings. i think it's an NHRA requirement to have a steel plate covering the bottom of the cell if it has a sump that sticks down below or through the trunk floor. some current classes are running front mounted fuel cells with the fuel pump submerged inside.
i like to use Jegs catalog's for reference when building my drag models as well as many internet sources and going to the track. my 1:1 '71 Dart has a 12 gallon fuel cell mounted in the trunk as well.

It's a crude setup, but it was cheap and is extreamly effective. If it wasn't for it being a street car, the filter would be gone!
