Bob Zetnick Posted July 28, 2015 Share Posted July 28, 2015 I've had an old fuel pump on my '29 since I've had it. I have a Stewart Warner vacuum tank that I'd like to restore and use. I've never used a vacuum tank before and have heard stories of them working great and stories of them working not so great. I know there can't be any vacuum leaks....I'm not much of a mechanic and don't want any problems on the road, especially in Texas heat. (I've heard if you protect the gas lines from exhaust heat there is less of a chance for vapor lock, though I never had this problem when driving and using the old fuel pump). I kind of want to hide a 6v fuel pump as well as a toggle switch where I can use the vacuum tank, but if there's a problem I can pull off to the side of the road, open the hood and turn an inline valve to change gas supply from vacuum tank to pump, then turn the pump on (w/ proper regulator) w/ the toggle switch. I think others have done this and I wondered if there are other issues to consider or if anyone has photos of the setup.....lastly, anyone have a vendor that restores the vacuum tanks?...it looks relatively simple, but I've messed up some simple things before.
