3aj tank mountings

Hi guys.

Can someone tell me how the 3aj tank mounts to the frame? Im looking at mounting a 3aj dakar tank on my 1vj Tenere and I can see that the mounts on the bak of the tank is the same (or close too it) but what about the front mounts?

maybe some one have a picture that shows the underside of the 3aj tank and can post it here?

thanks!

Tom.

Tank

Different from 1VJ; 3AJ has a bracket on the frame, the tank has two lugs around the bracket. Then, on top of the top frame tube there are two rubber pads that support the tank.
There are two bolts at the back of the tank (as 1VJ that hold everything in place.

Hi,

These 2 links may help you to see as well (Item 34 in the first link). And you can just see 1 of the 2 cups inside the tank (second link).

Here are some pics made by me and used in a material that debates the dismantling of the 3 AJ motor from the very very beginning to the end.

You will see this under the saddle :

Under the bars, on the inside of the tank you will see the anchoring points :

Here you can see them after i have taken the tank from the frame :

Hope they are useful.
All the best !
