Fuel Tank Replacement for the Lx450

The fuel tank in the Lx acquired a small crack on top of fuel tank. I don't know exactly, maybe this new fuel we have messed up my charcoal canister then over pressurized the tank??? It has been a common problem for the 80 series Land Cruiser. I did some research & this is what I find...

These are the parts I purchased for the job.
Plus this Cut-off Vale #77380-26010

I pick this NICE used tank up local from @megolfer on ih8mud forum.
