Yeah, I guess they want you to talk nice about them. It's the best advertisement they can have.

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Yep ,probably so...but I doubt I'll ever do another dash like this and I doubt my opinion, good or bad, will affect their business....haha

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Fabbed some new rear cab mounts out of 6x6 angle....to replace the old shackle style mounts that had sagged from age...I'll use rubber pads for cushion and also be able to adjust rear cab height...once the cab is set in place I'll drill the cab side bolt holes and add a gusset...more overkill...but that's me...

Do you get tired of praise? I suggest you get used to it if you haven't. Great job as always and the gauges look awesome. Can't wait to see them in the dash.

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Stuck the new cab mounts on ...before this ,a 2x4 laying on the frame rail had the cab sitting level with the frame...the new mounts and 2 pieces of 5/16 thick 90 durometer rubber have it sitting about 1/8-3/16 lower than the 2x4...so it should work just fine...I can shim it up as needed...

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

I was also getting ready to put the sealer in the gas tank and found a mess...there was a good amount of rust in the tank so I researched tank cleaner/sealer...Bill Hirsch products came highly recommended...I bought the kit that has the tank flush,etching fluid, and sealer...I went thru the flush and etch process but when I got ready to use the sealer I got to looking in the tank and it looks a mess in there...all kinds of charcoal looking crap along with varnish and oxidization....I've sent off a email and waiting on a responce before I proceed...heres the best pics I can get of what it looks like..

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Cab mounts look good. The tank, I'm not sure, does the black stuff flake off?

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Thanks Dale...
Yep..I stuck a long screwdriver in there and can scrape all the different colors and it flakes...I'm gonna wait and see what the man says but I may try pressure washing and I think itll make it turn loose...

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

If you can't find someone close to boil it out, when I was a kid, a LONG time ago, the older guys told me to clean out my gas tank with a 3-4' piece of chain and then roll it around in the tank, shaking it around. I did and checked the progress with a flash light and it did clean it up pretty well.

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

That or phosphoric acid? There’s a thread on rust in the General Discussion section about cleaning metal chemically. I think it was phosphoric but might be misremembering.
