The guy seemed to know he didn't have a 51 so I left that part out. I
didn't want to make it more confusing than it already was.


1950 F1 351C--50 years of sediment in the gas tank really does make a

I have a 3-2bbl intake for a y-block engine. Price $300.00.
It is an Offenhouser, the carbs may need to be replaced but they
are included at no extra cost. There are 2 ford and one holley
carbs, no linkage and no air breathers.If interested contact

<< Michell;

Just curious about the '85 trooper tank; do you recall how many gallons
that tank is, and what about fuel sender compatability. Did you have to do
anything special to get the fuel gage to work? Did you use the stock gage?
Also, do you have a fuel door cut into the left rear fender instead?

Thanks a bunch! >>

The tank has a 21.9 Gallon capacity. As far as the fuel sender is concerned,
the Isuzu had the sender mounted in the rear of the tank. I removed it and
installed a VDO sender in the same hole with only slight modification of the
mounting screws. The VDO sender had a slightly larger circle of mounting
screw holes. I elongated the holes inward on the mounting flange of the
sender less than 1/8 " so they would screw into original mounting holes. Also
the VDO fuel sender is designed to be mounted vertically form the top. I did
have to modify it to mount it horizontally, I did it my self and it works
perfectly. If I were able to do it I know that you would have no problem
doing so. I have a round hold in my left rear fender with the neck sticking
out from the hole slightly with a cap on it. A filler neck door would
probably look nicer, but that is the way it is for now.

Hello Mike.

I am a little behind on reading my mail, so you may already have
this information.

I just went out to the garage and measured my truck, and from the
center of the right park light to center of the left one on my '56, the
distance is 53 and 3/4 inches.

I hope this will help you out.
