Does any one have a shot handy? The one I'm working on now is missing
that stuff. I'll have to fab them, and I'd like to get as close to original
as possible.

Actually, I don't think the year matters from what I can figure out from Agco.

Thanks

Not a problem. I would have thought they were the same.

Will, I can get you shots of a 7 if that will help. Got one all torn down.

Hi Ross.
Thanks for the offer, but it's Ok. Got it figured out.

Also, for reference, the tank mount on a 7 is different than the MF8G, in that it is bolted
to the engine. On the 8G, there is a horizontal clamp arrangement that bolts to the dash tower.
The tank slides down into the clamp, as opposed to the 2 tank straps used on most of the MF's.
