The only thing I have discovered about the Izuzu tank
is that it fills from the side. In the article I read
the people notched the frame to allow the filler neck
to set low enough in the frame. This is not a big
deal if you don't care to cut up your frame, but I
prefer to keep everything as close to stock as
possible while improving the necessary problems. The
only other option is to mount the tank higher...while
raising your bed floor too.

I am still searching for a goood tank :(

No, the voltage (6 or 12) simply turns on the radio,
lights, and the internal amplifier. An amplifier can
be designed to work with 6, 12, 15..whatever voltages
with the same quality.
The trick is the quality of the components in the old
amplifier. Both units (new and old) will pick up the
same stations, but the new unit will have much greater
noise filtering and amplification to make a weak
signal more enjoyable.

Paul, I have owned two pre 61 panels, and I dont know the answer. BUT I am
certainly glad they are inside the rails on my 47 and likewise my ex 55. I am
anxiously awaiting someones solution to the mystery.
(Does this count as a reponse albeit a No Answer one?!.
