03-14-2012 10:10 PM Need more vacuum
Cleaned up the shop so I could finish up a couple of things on the '48 before I start driving her again. One of the things I needed to address was the lack of a pcv valve.had a couple of problems to solve first.....the strombergs don't have vacuum ports,and there are no holes in the valve covers.Also,I did not want a big breather like piece on the valve cover,I like how clean the engine looks right now. I found a place that makes spacers for the carbs with a vacuum port.Ended up with a set of them. They are 1 inch tall. Found a small inline pcv valve,and used a small chrome 90 degree fitting for the valve cover. Ended up drilling a small hole in the valve cover,and used a nut to secure the fitting to the cover. Put it at the front,so the alternator helps hide it.Routed the hose down by the water pump,added the pcv valve and back up to the center carb spacer. Over all I pretty happy with the set up.

03-03-2012 10:34 PM Gas Tank
I built the gas tank a while back.Its made from 16 gauge steel.Added a couple of pieces to act as baffles inside.I made the tank to fit the frame. Just tested it with a floor jack and a 2x4. Got back to it today,welded some nuts to some washers to weld inside the frame to bolt the tank to.Cut a window in the frame rail to weld the nuts inside,then welded them back closed when I was done.Used 6 bolts,but had to make a bracket to mount to the side of the frame rail for the front bolt .Going to make some straps to go under the tank from side to side.

The one down side to the new set up,is that when the suspension is air out,the car sits 3 inches higher than it did before. Has a hotrod rake now,instead of being level.
