Doing a little research into a new tank for the 73. Can't seem to find a replacement listed for 72/73. 

From what I have been reading, the 72/73 tank is 22.5 gallons, and the 74-up tank is 26 gallons. I have seen people say that you can use the 74 up tank in a 72/73 as long as you get the 74-up straps and sender unit. 

Does this sound right? Or does anyone know of a source for the early tank?

Nope...Ranchero tank is unique because of the side filler neck  :(
