When installing my fuel tank in my 24,should I put a rubber pad between the tank and the tank straps?
I did not and have had no trouble.
I don't think they had them originally. I didn't use any on mine either. Dave
I put rosin or construction paper between mine. I was perplexed with the same thought with my 1918. It looks like gasket material but I trimmed flush with the strap. Timmy
Thanks for the input.Happy Holidays.
I would be concerned that putting any kind of paper in there could hold moisture and eventually cause problems. Dave
Many modern cars use what looks like tar paper, like goes underneath a composition roof.
Or modified bitumen roofing tar?
Yes, that should work! Works for many things so why not this?
You know I finally took a minute to google modified bitumen roofing tar and our thread "modified bitumen roofing tar and Hugh ---"was the 4th result on the first page???
WOW.Makes me wonder what happened to ole Hugh.Maby he got lipo?
His id would get found out in the new anti-spam scheme. I have a real good guess who he is. Oh, also he's been on a diet, so the handle doesn't fit so well.
If Timmy is talking about the construction grade of rosin paper it is moisture resistant and is used between the sub-floor and floor boards to reduce squeaks and moisture penetration as well as other interior areas. The coating on this paper should not hold moisture therefore not causing a problem. While dismantling my '22 Coupe I found many areas where there were very thin strips of a fiber type paper ranging from a single sheet thickness to as thick as cardboard. Some placed between straps and some between wood frame areas where the sheet metal rests on it. I am assuming to reduce vibration noise.
