Fuel vapor expansion tank: metal, doesn't fit my 73?

Recommended Posts

Howdy. I recently bought my 5th Z, (consecutive not concurrent sadly) a 73 240. It had a fuel leak from the vapor expansion tank to the fuel tank, and it looks like all the lines are ready for replacement.

 

However, the tank doesn't seem to fit. It was just hanging there with 2 random screws, and the bottom right mounting point is ~2" away from the bracket on the 1/4 panel. Is there supposed to be a spacer there? The expansion tank looks like metal, I believe the early model was plastic, does that rule out the possibility of it being the wrong tank?

 

Also, where is that top left hose supposed to route to, it's just blocked off on my car?

 

Thanks in advance for any info.
