The tank will fit, but you'll need to have the filler neck cut and welded back on at the proper angle, as it needs to come out straight away from the wing, rather than toward the rear
.


Mini tank.


Elf tank.

Talking of which I have a Cooper S R/H tank that's been modified to fit an Elf/Hornet to sell if anyone's looking for one. I've fitted a ali fuel cell now. UK only.PM if interested.
