• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

missing gas tank option for pickup

We will likely be in need of a plastic replacement gas tank for our project (1970 1200D 3/4ton fenderside pickup). I was hoping to find a left/driverside cab-fill tank without emissions, and I don't see that as an option. Right now the truck has a metal tank of that description but it is old and gummy and not sure if it leaks or not. The support brackets/straps are rotted out for tanks on both sides. I could do a passenger side tank, but figured it's a bit more convenient when getting gas to have the fill on the driver's side. Is a tank available that would fit that bill?

Hi,

Driver-side cab fill was not offered from the factory. Only fender-fill for the driver side, while the passenger side has both cab and fender-fill options. The only "Cab/Body" fill options that were offered on the 1969-75' line was the Travelall, as it offered a left-rear tank fed into the cavity within the quarter panel.

That is interesting, and since I read that, I looked a bit closer at the driver side install and it is definitely more crudely done than the factory passenger side one. I also thought it odd that the gas tank had a date of 1973 on it. You can also see how someone welded the original tank hole up and cut in a new filler attachment
