Oil Tank, Front Trunk Mounted Oil Tank for ’65-’89 911's
This tank fits into the so-called smugglers or a/c box in ’65 to ’89 911’s. The factory used to mount the oil tanks there for better weight distribution and easier access. This tank is specifically designed to fit into that area. It has been used for over 20 years and has been virtually trouble-free. The internal baffling is designed to de-aerate the oil through a series of baffles and induced swirling. It also has surge baffles to keep the oil at the oil feed tube to the engine under all driving conditions, cornering, and braking.
The total volume of the tank is 1,102 cubic inches (4.7 gallons / 18 liters).
Its typical operating volume is 3.5 gallons (13.3 liters) to the bottom of the upper baffle when the oil is hot.
Typically we trim the surrounding chassis sheet metal as described in these install docs. However, it is possible to install with no trimming but extra care needs to be given while mounting to guarantee the tank doesn't rub against the chassis. Also, the strap provided will need mounting holes or studs installed to attach to the chassis. The bottom line is this requires a small measure of fabricating and fitting specific to each vehicle, have a look at the install docs in advance.
