I'm in the process of final assembly of the chassis for my Canadian '15 T. It originally arrived in a mixed bag of two half cars.
I tried to refit an original brass fuel line but I'm running into trouble sorting the route out.
Should the fuel line travel straight along the inside corner of the frame and behind the bottom corner of the wooden block between the crankcase support ear and the frame? The line looks like is should, but the wooden block doesn't have enough room. Its a new block and may not be made right.
The route straight along the frame looks like it makes the most sense.
Typical to run the line behind the pan ear wood block, bevel edge of block allows passage of the line.

Just what I needed.
I believe your gas tank mounting bolts are upside down.
Larry, Isn't bolt on top correct? If the nut comes loose you lose the nut but the bolt sort of holds the tank in place. If the nut were on top and it came loose, you lose everything.
The bolt is under, the castle nut and cotter on top.
Ford way, always
Is the assembly line method, easy to reach the castle nut and view the tightening and placing the cotter from above the frame.... one of those Ford quirks of the T
I ran my fuel line high above the exhaust pipe and to right of the main frame member to keep it as far from the hot exhaust pipe as possible. I used 1/4 inch copper tubeing and flair fittings.
Use of flare fitting is likely better than compression sleeve type, (center of photo), as I had used that type with copper line, and experienced a fracture and leak due to the compression type junction and the shaky twisting of the Ford chassis.
So now just stay with Ford way, steel gas line, pack nut, only change is instead of old time felt packing, use neoprene gas line hose section as washer/packing.
Dan, Ah. The cotter pin keeps the nut from falling off and you should loose neither. I ought to have known there would be a cotter pin!
