Jeff,

I personally used a mid 60's Mustang tank and it mounted right into the bed
rails..There is also an article on using an Isuzu Trooper tank and I think
Michelle has done this. Check the website for members contributions...
there is an index to Custom Truck and Custom and Classic trucks that will
show you month and years that have articles on the mid rail tanks.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: Include a subject line

Its become fairly common lately for people to
post messages without a subject line. This
makes it very difficult to follow a thread.
No filtering will be imposed, I'm simply
requesting that you include a subject
when you post a message.

Thanks,

Jeff sounds like we had the same ideas about a gas tank. I was going to make
my own out of stainless, but I did not like the fact that (in my case) the
fill spot was going to be in the bed. That left me undecided about what I
wanted to do about what type of bed I wanted to use. I was afraid with wood
surely there would have been drips of gas ruining the finish. When I was in
Pigeon Forge I seen several 56's that used he 53-55 setup With a nice flush
filler door in the corner of the cab. I am not trying to change your mind but
something to think about. I ended up buying a poly tank from Mid Fifties for
a 53-55.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - vacuum motor

I'm looking for a vaccum wiper motor for a 42 Flatbed. I don't think
that it matters that it's a flatbed but anyways, if anyone has one that
works that they would like to get rid of soon it would be great.

Not that you'll find any laying around, but the panel truck tanks
seem like they could work well in a pickup. They mount inside the frame rail
on the left, in the way of dual exhaust. Only 15 gallons, though. I ran my
dual exhaust under the frame to the outside of it, then up over the running
board brackets, with glasspacks tucked 'tween the two running board brackets.
'Course that was on a panel, might not be enough room on a pickup.

I am very much interested in an after-market overdrive unit for a three speed
transmission for a 52. What information do you have and where can they be
found?

You need new head bolts, the water is leaking around the old threads in the
block. I also used a sealer that I bought at NAPA when I reinstalled the
bolts. I did not replace all the bolts, only the ones that looked pitted.
