Pics of latest project.
Looks pretty cool. A few ?
1. Is that a standard water check valve at the pump?
2. What kind of mount are you using?
3. What size tank, looks like a pancake type?
Yes it's water check. Works but leaks down over time. 10lbs. over 2 days.
Mount is custom. Started with OEM MB mount I think? John should know Thanks for york too
Tank is a 13 gallon from a mack truck. Yes it was fun to get in place.
Damn man. that's the real deal!!!
Bringing my impact wrench, and sticking close to you!!!
That yer's John?
If I wasn't building a garage to work in, I might have some purdy stuff like y'all!
York and mount came off of an 70s Mercedeez, that I acidently crushed.........with my K5.
Yeah thats my crap. Can't you tell with the cluster muck of wires and hoses running everywhere. I spent about $100 with kilby on OBA parts (Fittings, check valve, pressure switch, pop off) while CB just went to the hardware store and my shop.
Hope it was subjected to a few hundred rounds of high velocity ammo!
Hate to tell you I only spent about $50 with new belt.
OH and garage is on the to do list
Nice setup. I need to redo my mounting bracket - its a little misaligned and it squeals. Did the MB bracket mount right up?
No had to fab main part off head. It gave me a head start had york and idler pulley on it. You can see my ¼ steel to head. Pics are easyer My pulley is alittle off but belt held on at 5 grand so I'm ok with it for now.
how did you go about securing the tank to the frame/body there?
some more pictures of that would be great if possible
Gas tank straps with old tire tube so no metal to metal. Drilled holes in ends and bolted to body.
And Yes that is a temp sender as plug in 2nd pic.
I like that idea a lot, did you do anything to couter act side to side motion?
No side to side movement rubber = no move
