The photo of the tank doesn't show that most of the bottom of the tank is rusted away. And has many holes.  Steel plates need to be rolled to size and welded in place.

Maybe some of the camera folks could get a photo of the bottom of the tank as it now is and post it.

Museum Discussion / Re: The WW&F 1930 Ford Pickup???
« on: December 10, 2008, 09:12:03 PM »
This is not a "pickup".  It is a 1  1/2 ton, dual rear wheels flatbed 1930 Ford AA Truck, Because the Ford company used  outdated parts  in the truck line to use up the stock of parts on the factory floors, the Museums truck has a model 1929 cab on a truck that was built in 1930.

I know of 5 muesum members who could drive this truck. (I own a 1931 Model A tudor sedan)  You just have to remmember to advance the spark lever, make a few more adjustments. Than remmember that there is no power steering, no directional lights (better know your hand signals). You have a manual transmission  and no power brakes. The more you press the brake pedal, the faster you may stop.

Matthew, The WW&F purchased just the tank. The tank needs a new bottom. Than museum needs to build the flat car to mount the tank.

   51 weight is 1.5 tons, 52 weight is 12 tons. To much weight for a snowmobile trailer. Plus there is a shortage of manpower to remove rail from other locations.

Duff Alum Track Jacks are no longer manufactered. Museum has a small Duff jack that is missing the Pawl spring. Mfg. don't have replacement springs. I got a replacement from Simplex. But that spring is to small (wide) to fit.
