Hello mrmom, Maybe I can help. I tried the standard 6 Volt battery, (740 Cranking amps),It turn over my newly rebuilded V-12 very slow. Now I'm using an 6 Volt "OPTIMA" batt. with 980 Cranking Amps. It works much better. You may find a Rebuild fuel tank at "Merrin Adkins, Ph. (909) 980-1332" (Calif)I got a good fuel tank from him last year. smile.gif" border="0
