My 87 CRX fuel tank has some pretty bad rust. I found a decent fuel tank assembly but it's off an 85 HF. HondaPartsNow says the tank and pipe/meter/strainer units don't fit the 87 DX, but they look nearly identical. Are they actually not compatible or is it just saying that because they're different part numbers?

Tanks from carbureted cars should be the same.  the strapping points are all under there for either FI or carbed cars. The pickups are on these types.  You could swap the pickup from your tank to the new one if it looks different so it attaches right up.

Cool, thanks! Do I actually need the $100 Honda sender wrench to get the various units in and out or is it possible to do it with normal tools?

All the ones I have ever removed came out with a small hammer and big flathead.  Tapped it around until it came off.

All right, I'll give it a shot. Thanks!
