Managed to get the fuel tank out of the Nomad today as it needs replacing but no idea where its from. Anybody seen anything like it before and can point me in the right direction to find a replacement?

Close, but no cigar I'm afraid - the tank matches, but the filler pipe doesn't. I reckon it's the saloon version you need - like this one.
Still, at least we're on the right track.

Steve is correct it is a Marina tank.

I was under the impression that saloon/van/pickup tanks were the same but I may be wrong.

As far as I can remember mine was saloon tank.

If you intend to use a mini speedo with fuel gauge......it will never read above 2/3 full.
You can bend/shorten the sender arm.......but you can then lose accuracy at the empty end of the scale.

It's worth bench testing the the tank/sender/gauge before you fit the replacement. Suggest you try other/separate gauges.

Your Nomad has the breather at the correct level. Early fitments had the breather going under the chassis rail.
This just filled with petrol until the expansion/pressure was too much and the it blew out........
