This is an 18 gallon Javelin fuel tank that was removed from a Cessna 185. These tanks go in the floor of the baggage and have an external fill and vent in the side of the fuselage. They are plumbed in to pump fuel up into a wing tank. This tank is in good shape. It has a fuel gauge sending unit installed. For a full price offer I will take it in to atlee dodge and have it pressure tested and tagged.
Here is what I have learned about installation of this tank
It is listed on the Type Certificate for the C170 (item 113) and can be installed with a log book entry.
It is STC approved on the C180 SA3-381
It is STC approved on the C175 SA3-285
Interestingly there was an AD issued in 1973 that required a placard regarding use of the pump that also lists the 172 and 182, but I have not been able to figure out how it is approved for those models.
