Subject: FTE Pre48 - 46 gas tank mounting bolts
I pulled the gas tank on my '46 to rehab it and noticed that it had only
one mounting bolt but there appeared to be brackets and holes for 3. The
configuration I have is as shown with the x's indicating where the holes in
the tank match square holes in brackets.
The left side has a bolt, spring, washer and castle nut. The right side
doesn't have any attachments (don't know what happened to them). I can put
carriage bolts on the right side but want to know if there should be any
springs, bushings or the like for suspension. The service manual says
"Remove the two tank mounting bolts from the tank bracket on the right side
and the one mounting bolt and spring from the tank on the left side". No
mention of springs on the right side. The chassis parts catalog (Green
Book) also doesn't show any springs or bushings on the right side. It seems
strange that the tank would be solidly mounted on the right side and sprung
on the left side. Does anyone have any thoughts or knowledge to share?
