I know we had the tropical radiators in the brass T's with the larger top tank, I'm just curios if anyone knows anything about a larger fuel tank, I have just bought a 16, USA model, how long in Australia I don't know, can only go back that it was in NSW for 10 years and in QLD before that.
Tank is rectangle and a neat fit under the seat, holds about 16 gallons and written on the top is, out back model T, any info?
New one on me Frank however we are a resourceful lot especially the mechanics and organisations in the bush. Allan Bennett or Dave Chantrell in SA will know
Dalgety tank?Possibly? Know they are rectangular under the seat....don't know capacity ( yet)
Frank, I forgot to tell you, I think the reference to Outback Model T is referring to a group of guys that have a club of that name based around Parkes NSW. I think the tank is a one off to suit the body and have a large capacity to cover long distances.
Before you get old and slow and hair as white as snow, you should write a book on all the T things you know.
PS, I'm sure your old man could fill 1/2 of it!
Kerry told me that he's back in the valley hospital,that's good, one more step closer to back home.
Could you post some pictures and dimensions of the tank? It would be interesting to make one. These days gas stations are getting further and further apart and I have a long distance T trip on my "bucket list". I assume when you say 16 gallons you mean REAL imperial gallons!!!
13"wide x10.5"high x27"long. and was 15.95 US gallons,
Only one use for that tank Frank. Lets fill it up and see how far it will go! Les, I hope it is that delightful little 1913 pickup you have plans for a long distance journey in??? Still got 2 boys to educate but a long distance Aussie tour is very much on my agenda. Now my Dad has a some new ticker parts , hopefully he will able to join with me on the trip with his grandson! So close to losing him and very happy to have him around to enjoy a lot more T touring together!
Thank you for the pictures and dimensions
So only about 12.5 Imperial gallons. Still it would about double your range!
