Hello. I've been getting g into my newly acquired 78 S&S. I have many question s but for tonight is about the fuel tank. My boat has a replacement fuel tank. Unfortunatly the PO couldn't get the hole line up and had to relocate a new fill spout. Oh well. My question is that the new tank has a top outlet and vent. Was the original tank outlet on the top and does it matter.

my '79 has the outlet and vent tubes on the top, if you're taking it out I'd recommend having a shop clean it and check all the welds; I got stranded last year because of the pickup tube breaking off in the tank.
