  • Who Needs Gas Tank Clamps

    Seems like someone is always needing these tank clamps, even though the seller calls them "bushings". Too bad the bolts are gone.

    I never put mine back on. Has seemed OK for 25 years

      Cheap enough, until you pay his shipping price. ? ? ?

        It has been so long since I put mine back on the 29 but I think one of them had a metal retainer for the vacuum line. I was able to
        reuse the bolts in mine. I guess the engineers determined that clamps were necessary for the weight of a fully loaded gas tank.

          I have about 30 or 40 extras. Berts charge $3.00 each for them. Shipping would be about the same from Berts. So this does not look to be a bad deal. As far as the bolts I seem to only have about a 25% survival rate. Rod

            Checking 28/29 gas tank for leakage
            by wrndln
            I have what looks like a nice gas tank I plan to use on my 29 CCPU. I bought it at a swap meet, so I have no idea of its history. It is a rare tank that doesn't need the radiator bracket areas repaired on the firewall of the tank - I have 6 or 7 gas tanks and all need the bracket area repaired, some more than others. Some 28/29 gas tanks have seepage around the steering wheel bracket on the tank...

            Gas tank blues...
            by Beauford
            So when I received a gas tank I purchased I really didn't give it a good once over since the deal was done and guy said it had no dents and was a really nice tank. Got it back from sand blaster....what a waste of money. Huge whammy in the top corner. Nasty welds on upper corners of dash. Looks like fuel valve was snapped or cut off so there is a mess there....nobody will work on a tank correct due...

            Gas Tank
            by copgib
            For anyone who has changed out the gas tank in a Model A Coupe, how difficult was it? I am considering it but haven't decided for sure yet. I plan to change it out because the neck where the gas cap attaches to on mine is crushed. Don't know how this happened but it was like that when I got the car. Gas cap will fit but held on by maybe one thread. Hugh

            On a 31 Standard Tudor is the face of the gas tank, the inside visible portion, glossy or satiny?

            Gas Tank Baffles
            by gdaquilina
            Do the gas tank baffles ever come loose and bang around in the tank? I have a very sharp metallic sound when going over bumps that sounds as if it is coming from the gas tank. I have checked everything that is anywhere near the cowl for looseness and signs of metal on metal contact and have come up empty. Any ideas?

            Gas Tank Rust Removal
            by CSPIDY
            Finally got around to addressing the rust in the gas tank of my 28 Tudor.
            the plan is to remove it, fill it with 10 gallons of Evaporust, clean with Por-15 cleaner degreaser, then prep with the Por-15 metal prep, followed with Por-15 paint coating.
            what are your thoughts? I have heard good reports on the Por-15 paint but have some reservations using an internal coating.
            any advise...

            Gas tank welt - 29 Tudor
            by Bill G
            When installing the welt around the gas tank, should I use any adhesive or sealer, or is the pressure provided by all the small bolts around the tank and cowl enough to keep the rain out?

            After you get it clean .....
            by BillLee/Chandler, TX
            I am getting ready to replace a leaking gas tank in my Tudor, I have a very good one coming from Berts, but ..... I'm not totally sure what I should do now.

            I have read Brent's thread over on the old barn regarding getting a tank clean, by cutting apart and then re-welding. But what do you do AFTER you get it clean? What do you do to keep it from turning back into a rusty tank?
