Re: Gas Tank Drain Fixture

The down side of removing the drain plug is you will break the surface of the tank coating allowing gas to get between the sealer and metal of the tank possibly causing the sealer to lift break up and plug the pickup tube

Back before I knew we could order new gas tanks, we had our gas tank cleaned and recoated. I had  a strong suspicion that they didn't remove the drain plug, but I forgot to check on that before we installed it. I've siphoned the gas before and that was a trial, hence I'd like to use this drain.

 Do you see any significant issue with me opening it under these circumstances? Any special considerations when I put it back?

If I should stick with siphoning, just say. We've had no gas leaks from this tank, which was in pretty decent condition before we took it in.

Thank you.

My son has the remains of passenger side door that still has the lock. It's from a 48 sedan. You are welcome to it, but it can't compete with a new lock from the vendors.

Thank you Tim, would you take a close up of the clip on the hold down? I believe this is for the hood prop.

Re: Prewar battery hold down

 

Just as an aside, is there a place we can go to see everything our vendors sell? The listings online lean heavily towards postwar Crosley’s and I often hear about stuff that I didn’t know they sold from other members here on this forum. I just wanted to be sure I was not missing a link or website that lists everything. Thanks!

Here is one that was at Wauseon a few years back, can’t swear it is original but photos of several others that were not as good looked similar.

It’s close to the original color, it’s Volvo 604 ( midnight blue) it was a close match to the chip I took to that paint store.
