1985 Chevy 1/2 ton dual fuel tanks

I inherited this truck from my Dad and would like to have more info on it. Are there gas lines coming from each tank or does one tank empty in to the primary tank? Are all of these trucks "cold blooded"? Seems to have a carburator or choke problem. Any problems with the transmissions (350 turbo)? Where would be the best place to find a windshield? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Mary
