Is there any of your 2x4 frame lower than the tank, and is there any way you can run steel line to outlet on tank. even if you come out in front on top. do you have an inspection plate in bed of box. If you can't get a steel line on there you are SOL anyway and will have to use rubber which is not good.

This is one reason Studebaker never built their trucks on S-10 frames, or 2x4 frames.

If you can give me the right answers you can get it mounted.

hmmmmm

Studebaker probably should have used 2x4 3/8" thick steel frames and maybe their frame would still be here and I wouldnt be in this mess. They didnt have a choice on using s10 frames since they didnt come around for 35 years or so after this truck was made. I didnt have a rear usable frame nor could I find one. I moved the tank to the back of the vehicle because theres a transmission cross member and shortly a master cylinder and power booster in the way of where the frame mounted tank would have been. I tried to use the original frame mounted tank under the driver but it was a no go.
now in just looking to run functional fuel lines to the front of the vehicle. ive included some photos to show where im at. Hopefully this helps.
btw: photo wise, the exhaust pipe shown is not what im using, and I am going ot be looking for a solution for shocks. I have 12" from bottom of axle to top of cross member. oh and my wooden bed rests on top of that cross memeber

I am very appreciative....

thanks for the advise, I really do appreciate it. I generally do 55-59 chevy pickups back ot stock. I fell in love with the split windshield and traits ahead of its time on this truck, but sadly it needs quite a few things completed that I am not familiar with. I have a whole new respect for people who mix and match. It was easy to search exact parts for replacement and bolt them on. The different frame, chevy 350, ford 9" rear, etc. makes everything more difficult and requires alot more thought to complete. BUT, since everyones telling me I wont be able ot get it done, im going to get it done.

Well I hate to be the one that gives you the bad news, but unless you can get that pump, at least even or below the bottom of the tank, it will not work. the pumps are meant to be gravity fed. I called 2 different companies they said the same thing.

The only way I can see that working is to remount the tank. If you can weld up a box that would put the tank even or above the kick up, so the bottom of the tank is higher, you can get it to work. Unless someone knows of a pump that will pull the gas up that kick up, and if they do I'm sure the cost of the pump would be very high, like several hundred dollars.

If you can redo that tank I have a very good way to mount it on the tube frame.The only way I see how to do it, like I said is move the tank up. You have it all apart now is the time to do it.
