  1. Anyone use the tanksinc replacement tank they have listed for the 39 t0 47 dodge in a 1952 b3b. They say the can be used with some modes, but do not described what the modes are. thanks Joe.
  2. The front end of my gas tank has a fitting screwed into it having a barb on the outlet end and a 5/16 inch single flare on the end that screws into the tank. To me, the barb implies that a rubber gas line to the carb was used at some point. Is that correct? Also, I'd rather not use plastic or rubber fuel line nor this barbed/single flare fitting. Instead I think it would be much better to install 5/16 inch CuNi brake line and use a double flare fitting to screw into the tank. Does this sound like a good way to go? Will a new double-flared line make a good seal with the gas tank which was apparently built using a single flare fitting inside the tank? Any suggestions about the best and safest way to get gas from the tank to the carburetor are welcome at this point. Fitting Tank Internal Fitting
  3. Anybody using a portable fuel tank in their old vehicle? I've been using and 6 gal. outboard boat fuel tank with a quick disconnect on my 1948 B1B while working on it in my driveway. Liked the way it was working out. Only a small quantity of fuel dedicated to the truck. It has a manual vent plug that can be opened when running the truck and can be closed to help prevent air from getting to the10% ethanol in the fuel. Had a plan to purchase another tank so would have 12 gallons on board. When one tank got low would be able to disconnect from it and reconnect to the full tank. When I did Internet search for the new tank found out these poly tanks are not DOT approved. Guess they're OK for running boat motors on the water but not vehicle motors on the roadways. Anyhow, started an internet search for DOT approved fuel tanks. Seems that manufacturer supplied tanks supplied on the vehicle are approved. Then there other regulations for tanks that are used to transport fuel that are not supplying fuel to the transporting vehicle, i.e. if you are transporting fuel in portable tanks in the back of a pickup truck for example. As can be expected these regs will make your head spin, but know if not followed correctly the fines involved would likely spin your head right off. I checked on buying a new replacement tank as seems to be recommended by this forum but was wondering if anybody was using something other than the stock fuel tank. Regards to all and enjoy the upcoming 4th of July holiday.

  5. Hi, new to the forum. I have a 51 b3b truck. I'm replacing the fuel tank. My question is this. Do you need to use the springs and bolts or can it be bolted to the frame directly. Thanks for any input.
  6. 47' Plymouth Special Deluxe Will be a lot of trouble mounting a Ford 9" rear end? The leaf spring mount is welded to the axle. If I cut the leaf spring bracket off the existing axle. Measure, etc and attach it to the new one will i run into any issues? ALSO, the shocks on the rear axle are mounted at a 45 degree angle. Why is that? Is that accomplishing anything? I know there are a lot of things I'd have to tweak. But looking for an overall guess on it? Another question. I have a custom 15 gallon universal gas tank installed. There is a hose and what appears to be a vent that attaches above the axle to the underside of the body. Every time I fill it up all the way it leaks like nothing I ain't ever seen before. If i fill it up just about halfway I have no issues. Ideas?
  7. hi folks, Dodge central list 2 tanks...can anyone enlighten me as I get no email replies from them What is the difference between 1947-48 and 1950 gas /fuel tanks? http://dodgecentralmi.biz/ocart/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=394 Or anyone has another outlet who sells the tank? cheers ryan
  8. This is my "barn-find"....although I've always known where it was so I didn't find it. This is my great grandfather's truck...his name on the side along with the name of the farm. My grandma gave me this truck when I was 10 years old and this vehicle is what made me fall in love with old cars. 25 years later, I am finally at a point where I am resolved to get it running again after sitting parked in a little home-made "dodge barn" for 42 years. After a lot of time and patience, I got the seized engine unstuck by jacking up the rear wheel, turning it all the way to one side, and filling the chambers with WD-40 or whatever other penetrating oil I had on hand. Then I would turn the wheel all the way to the other side until it stuck, and did the same thing. After a few weeks of back and forth every few days, it came unstuck...even has compression. Threw a battery from my Model T on this truck yesterday to see if the starter worked, and the truck cranks over now. My next step will be to drain the old oil, WD/40 and everything else out of the system and put some new oil in, then pull her around the farm to get lubed up. The gas tank is quite rusted, visually, on the outside. No idea what it looks like inside, but I'm guessing terrible, so I have some questions. Keep in mind, this truck will not be restored or repainted to look new. It is an old farm truck so I'm not going to do much to its appearance at all, except wash it, but I want it running smooth, staying original as possible, and safe to drive. That being said, has anyone got advice on how to replace a shot gas tank in a B1B? Does anyone make reproduction tanks specifically for this truck that I'm not finding? I found this: http://www.tanksinc.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=349/prd349.htm They say with some modifications their dodge tank will fit a B1B. Has anyone used this tank? Another company? I'm just interested in your thoughts as I look at tacking the fuel system. Thanks boys!
