    Looking for inspiration to mount a gas tank behind my cab, in the bed of my 1935 International. I have a universal 16 gal old style tank, so I want it visible.
    Any pictures would be helpful. Thanks:)

    plain and simple...speedway brackets...battery is in the toolbox...cant tell you how many people say "dont forget your toolbox, thats nice and will get stolen" hahahaha

    one thing i would change is i would mount the tank about an inch farther from the bed front...if i spill gas right now my hand is too big to get back there and wipe it up

    My 36 has the tank in the bed, I built a wooden box around it, added speaker grilles to the box, nobody knows its a gas tank.
     

  4. 1929 closed cab pu: Bolted it in toward the front, adding some solid braces under the bed

    I felt dealing with overflow and venting was important, so I made a little bucket to fit around the filler, ran the vent line to it and an overfill out and away from the exhaust.

    painted it

    built a plywood box for hauling stuff.

    Its an aluminum military surplus tank, made some straps and used old trampoline springs to keep it held tight n anchored the straps to the floor

    A little angle iron crib & some early Model T steel straps from The Hot Rod Co. & that's it. I did line the inside of the straps with rubber to prevent metal on metal chafing. The tank is from a 1924 Federal-Knight truck, by the way.
