  1. Wouldn't that be a treat if you owned the car...
  2. When I was a kid , I was always looking over the Hemmings Motor news and Old cars weekly swap sheets ect ect. for rare and affordable cars. I remember telling my dad "Its a RARE CAR" he alsmost always would respond "So are DODO BIRDS, But who cares" Ive had a few really rare cars . One was the only one known.. It was a 1913 Walh touring. It had a Rochester NY made Hazard motor and the car was built in Detroit. Yes it was rare but not very valuable.

  20. OK Buddy ... I was shaving some fun with you. Mike (smiling)
  21. My thoughts are you overthink too many things. Its a old car... not heart surgery. Ive had several tanks (model T ford speedsters ) with pressurized tanks . I put some pipe dope on the threads and tighten it up. Done and fine.....
  22. I have a plumbing house next door to me that has beeni business since the 1950s. They have old stuff . What sizes are you thinking 3/8 pipe? Ill find out what he has in brass I used 1/2 inch pipe on my Mitchell. For the fuel out of the tank and 1/4 inch pipe to pressurize the tank . Ill send pics ofmy tank. Mike
  23. Al go to a plumbing supply co an buy a flange plate with the pipe thread size you need . I drill 4 holes in them and rivot/ sweat them in place. They look great and are authentic. Make sure to get in brass and you shape the flange part to fit the radius of your tank.
