    Route of the 2249 Dodge Senior fuel pipe

    My 29 Dodge truck fuel line routes on firewall fairly close to the engine head. May be good idea to wrap fuel line with heat resistance tape. Not sure if asbestos tape is available, does anyone know a source for purchase?

    Vacuum tank rebuild

    Do you have a product name and a place to purchase. I noticed that “POR” has a product but not sure if it will perform well.

    Vacuum booster valve

    I need the vacuum valve for my tank. There are two vacuum amplifiers shown. I believe the amplifier assists the vacuum during high fuel demand. One shown is for a Kingston tank and other is for a Steward tank. The Steward tank also requires a check valve fitting on the vacuum inlet. The orifice in the valve is the size of #60 drill or #18 wire. I also need the valve. What is a source for the amplifier or a check valve?

    1929 Fisher Body wood patterns

    I salvaged some very poor patterns for my Dodge Bros truck. It took a little trial and error to get wood fabricated. I use a lot of white pine, glue and wood filler to get a proper reproduction as a pattern. Choose a soft wood that is easy to work with for patterns.

    Fuel vacuum tank

    There are two vacuum amplifiers shown. I believe the amplifier assists the vacuum during high fuel demand. One shown is for a Kingston tank and other is for a Steward tank. Do they both have the calibrated orifice? The Steward tank already has a check valve fitting that has an orifice the size of #60 drill or #18 wire and I do not have this valve. Does the Steward tank need the check valve if you use the amplifier with an orifice? What is a source for the amplifier or a check valve?

    Fuel vacuum tank

    I found the tank I have is a Steward Model 493 C. It has a 4 screw top while the others have a 8 screw top.The float in my tank is not repairable and I have purchased Steward model 216AF tank. Float is perfect and rebuild parts are available thru Meyers Parts . Thanks for all the input. This forum has been very helpful.

    Kingston Fuel Vacuum Tanks

    I have found a reference to Kingston Tanks in my Dodge Brothers Truck parts book. The attached picture shows a vacuum tank and it is not a Steward. Note the size. Is this a Kingston tank? Does any body have any information on this tank?
