would someone kindly post some pics of the gas tank / seat arrangement for the 25 tudor? I know the tanks fits the seat, but what is the location or seat measurement from the door, and front firewall to be used. If someone could post a pic of the underside of the car looking up it would be greatly appreciated
Craig, do these help any? It's a little fuzzy under there. This car was re-wooded as close as possible to correct. I can take more if needed.
Perfect, and most thanks
Craig, I'm going through the same process you are right now with my '24 and can try to get you some measurements if you end up needing them.
Richard, the tudor I've viewed/photo'd/documented/measured to help me with my project didn't have any wood beneath the fuel tank. Is that original on yours or something you added? I can add it now if needed, which is why I ask.
Mike I would guess by the cut out in the floor that there was wood under the seat. My lower seat section has a flange where it appears to have been screwed down to something. I also added a floor section under the tank/seat .
Mike, that is a good question. My patterns had the
recess as did the Body Book photo so I assumed there would be a board there to give the tank extra support. With it in there the tank still has more than 1/2" clearance with the cross strap and lip in the top of the seat frame. Couldn't hurt but I don't know if it is original.
Thanks guys. I already have the recess there so it won't take much to add some wood there and leave a hole for the sediment bulb to stick down through. I sure would have loved to have had that picture of the skeleton about 4 or 5 years ago! Great stuff.
Those Body photos sure helped me. Out of 3 bodies there was barely enough good wood to make guesses. Take some pictures of your wood before covering it up if you can.
Rich, I've taken quite a few pics, but probably not enough. Here's the latest...
