The Alltrac tank is shaped to spoon with the spare tire and is unique to the Alltrac trim.

Thanks for the feed back...I cant believe they would change the gas tank for awd...seems they be the same, but, why did I ask. Well, anyways I dropped the tank today. Not to bad at all, it will be ok...just some trash and alittle rust...got stuff already to fix the problem. I think the fuel filter was never changed. different pump thou. Thanks

Por 15 makes product to restore fuel tanks.
You really think it should have been identical fuel tank on a 4WD and FWD vehicle? Think about it again:)

The sock in the tank isn't the main fuel filter, it's just there to block any big chunkies.

I know. Been working on cars since 1994 to present in the field now four 3 years. See you had 87 gts. I had a 86 gts for 13 years, couldn't blow her up.

As recommended above use the POR-15 kit. I used it on mine to eliminate the minimal rust I had on mine and it worked great!!

Sorry for the phone pics but the tank is on the floor in the second pic in between the shelving. For underside repair and clean up POR really is awesome stuff! Besides I don't think a gas tank would enjoy a powder coating oven lol!!! Oh btw if you're going through the whole thing the level sensor gasket is not available separate so try not to rip it. All the other gaskets are still available from Toyota as are all the mounting screws.

Cool, I really appreciate the advice and pics. So, did you just pour in the tank and roll it around, and, let it sit? for how long?

I am sorry but I didn't clarify better. If you have "internal" rust then you will need their gas tank repair kit. This is sold as a set with directions. Google their site and you can see what's included. I had "external" rust near the pump hanger which required removing the OEM coating and applying the POR. I had planned to use the internal kit but I got lucky with the condition on the inside.

Good to hear, you just never know when talking to someone on the internet how familiar they are with things. I miss my 87 like crazy, first car I ever bought and the only car I've ever let go. It spun a bearing at 468xxx km because I was a stupid teenager and because I was a stupid teenager I couldn't fix it.
