I have a question about these. Did they use different length skins on the 5 and 10 gallon visibles? Are they the same? I ask because I have 5 gallon skins that measure 74" and the ten is 72". I am needing to know the difference and why all the parts houses are 68"???


Thanks, Phil

Some are also a different diameter at top, under cylinder casting!
Better to find original skins, even a little rough as the Repop's don't have the stamped rings/ridges, last time I looked.

That is why I was measuring. The repos look like junk.

Repop's are Slightly better than not having any

I believe the T176 skins are a couple inches shorter than the T177's. Not sure about the five gallon/10 gallon difference. Brady
