Re: 58 Apache short bed rebuild

Lastly I made mounts for the fuel pump and fitted brackets for securing the tank to the chassis. Iíve still to clean up the tank and pressure test it for leaks.

Re: 58 Apache short bed rebuild

Finally got the tank pressure and leak tested. Had 2 pin holes to weld and I also had to weld the inside lip of the sender flange as it was leaking through the screws. I also had to add 2 small o-rings to the sender unit as it was leaking past the bolt and no matter how much the nut was tightened it still leaked. After all the tweaking itís now good to go. Just a shame it will be so long before it sees actual fuel
