1977 Ford Mallard Fuel tanks

I have a 1977 Ford Mallard E350 with a 460. I have dual tanks. Websites show only a rear tank that is 22 gallon behind the axle. I can not find anything on how big my front tank is too replace the sending unit. Does anyone know the size of the front fuel tank?

You're correct, the '77 Ford had a 22 gallon tank behind the rear axle. The auxiliary tank could be any size. Since you'll have to remove the tank to install a new sending unit in the top, I'd drop the tank, measure the depth of the tank from top to bottom, and get an appropriate unit. It really doesn't matter on the gallon size of the tank, just the height of the tank. When you reinstall the tank, you can take it and fill up and find the capacity.
