Replacing your 1982-1983 diesel Vanagon/Transporter’s old brittle or cracked coolant expansion tank with a new gasoline-model tank? This tank mounting bracket ‘standoff’ will make installation in your diesel Vanagon easier.
The coolant expansion tank for the 1983-85 gasoline Vanagons, while an excellent upgrade for the old diesels, will not fit into the stock diesel tank mounting bracket. Van Cafe/Rocky Mountain Westy offers a nice expansion tank mounting bracket for the newer tanks, but it doesn’t fit the diesel Vanagon without cutting off or bending flat the original tank mounting flanges on the bulkhead.
Rather than molesting the original bodywork, this bracket ‘standoff’ design adapts your new Van Cafe/Rocky Mountain Westy mounting bracket to fit the bulkhead’s existing slots.
NOTE: Coolant Expansion Tank and primary Mounting Bracket not included.

This heavy-duty standoff is fabricated of 2 mm steel, pre-drilled, and primed and painted for decades of use.
