We bought one of those old school label makers. Very period correct LOL!

Might try pinching off the aux line at the end away from the carb, after you drive it...wait a few days and see if itll crank...might need a small check valve in the line

I have a feeling once I get the main tank up and running, all my issues will go away. I say that because the tank is so much higher. The pickup tube connection is about 6 - 8 inches above the rear floor. We shall see!

I scuffed up the reconditioned tank so we could spray it with some Rust-Oleum mild rust primer and flat black. Here is the before with some close ups of the added ports. I also got a drain plug! All the ports are 3/8" NPT. I added that one in the middle in case I ever need a return line for fuel injection.

Gas tank is all painted. MrsKenmore did a few coats of Rust-Oleum primer and the flat black. Came out real nice. I installed the new fuel sender / pickup with Perm A Tex Aviation. Supplied O ring installed as well.

As an FYI, I'd recommend reusing the stock locking ring. It's thicker than the supplied one with the replacement piece. It also has the gradual slopes which compress everything as you tighten. The replacement one is dead flat.

Truck ran last on Sunday when I installed the selector valve and replumbed the fuel lines. It's Tuesday evening and I am still experiencing tough cold starts. I thought with the fuel line no longer pitching directly back into the tank, the issue would go away. Certainly a head scratcher. Never had a hot start issue.

So I decided to order from RockAuto an Airtex E8090 electric fuel pump to function as a priming / helper fuel pump. I'll likely install a discrete momentary switch to to give the carb a shot before starting. It is a "pass through" design so the mechanical fuel pump can pul through the electric fuel pump. This will get installed at the main tank (after the tank, after the filter, before the selector valve).

MrsKenmore did a great job figuring out how these mercury lamp sockets worked. It's very simple but brilliant. Power comes off the 12V+ constant at the bulkhead connector terminal that feeds the rear tailgate glass and trailer. I had the lights installed upside down first. Nope. Even though the light would illuminate the engine better, this doesn't work.

Much better now.

I'm using 1141 bulbs now but I am thinking some LEDs would be very handy to have as to not drain the battery.

I'm trying to find nice grommets. The ones from back in the day were so much better. The new ones are really just plastic and the hole here is 15/16". I have 7/8" and 1" plastic grommets from Auveco. Neither work. I wish the old style rubber ones were available. I have yet to find them.

Here is the lamp socket in pieces.

Matthew,
PM your address, I’ve got 4 rubber ones…they are 1” and 7/8” and I bet they are forgiving enough to work.

So MrsKenmore has been in the hunt for one headliner bow retainer clip which goes on the end of the bow and clip into the sides. Stroker3 and jeff campbell have been great in sending us some. However, both were too narrow!

What I learned through reviewing my parts catalog is that IH went to the wider bow for the 1973 - 1975 model years. The later years have a bow width of about 1 1/16".

Early clip - 682083R1
Late clip - 440397C1

Main gas tank is installed and fully functional. It came out very nice. No leaks!

I installed the stock vapor separator which my Travelall did not come with.

The vent lines criss cross per the original design. The middle line here vents out to the charcoal canister. Both tanks are twinned into the charcoal canister.

I installed a clear fuel filter where I transition from the rubber line from the tank to nylon in between the frame rails.
