Need Fuel Tank Image NRC9225

I need a new fuel (diesel) tank for my '84 d-90. I have contacted m and m 4x4 (www.mm-4x4.com) to purchase the tank. They have always provided great service to me. They indicated that they believe that my tank is a land rover part #NRC9225 (based on pix that I sent). In an effort to make sure I agreed with m and m's opinion, I found an image of a NRC9225P on Rimmer Bros. website for comparison. The NRC 9225 with the "P" suffix shows a tank with Two large openings in the top (one for the fuel gauge, the other... who knows as well as one small hole for the fuel draw). My tank only has the one large hole (fuel gauge) and one small hole (fuel draw) on top. The vent nipple and the fuel hose nipple on my tank are on the rear side of the tank. Does anyone know where I can find an image of the NRC 9225 (without the "P" suffix) tank. I just need to compare and see if it has one or two large openings on top. I've attached the Rimmer Bros image of the NRC9225P
Thanks,
Mike

Fuel tank

Hi Mike hope this helps,
the two hole(large holes) tank is for the V8 which has an in-tank pump
one hole is for the sender unit, the other pipe is the fuel pump hole and the small hole at the front is for the fuel return pipe.

you have a one hole tank (sender unit with intergral fuel pickup pipe) and a small hole for the fuel return in front of it

this is a pic of my 1985 fuel tank ignore the fuel feed pipe above the vdo sender i have added it as the vdo sender had no pickup pipe

regards

Thanks Gren-
Your pictured tank looks essentially like mine except for the added smaller fuel return that you indicated that I should ignore. Do you know if your tank has a different number than NRC9225? In the alternative, is there a blank or something of that nature to close off the second large opening toward the rear of the tank? Thanks for any advice or info you might have.
Mike

If it has two openings it's an image of the later tank, P/N NTC2088. The second large opening is for an in tank pump for petrol, or holds the diesel fuel pickup, P/N NTC2159. The P/N you have is for the earlier tank, which would have only one large opening for the fuel level sender. It's probably been superseded by the newer one If you have the fuel level sender with the fuel pickup, you could just make a cap for the other hole, it will have captive nuts for m5 machine screws.

You can see all the parts I'm talking about here.

I purchased a new tank for my 1984 90 (single hole) from safarirover and he was able to get the proper one for me. It has been almost a year but I just told him I wanted part number NRC9225 single hole tank for an early 90 and it was under 200 shipped to my house.

It is still sitting on the shelf in the garage, I will check it out in a little bit to see if it has a brand or part number on it.

Guys-
Thanks for the info. It is very helpful. I would go the Safari Rover way, but, I need it quick (no offense to Safari Rover or Steve). I've ordered a number of items from Safari Rover and I have always received the parts, but, it actually works out quicker to order it directly from the UK. I think Steve probably has to wait until he has a full container to ship over. Anyway, the info will help me get directly from the UK
Mike
