We are doing the funk v8 conversion to a 52. Just got the front end back on it. We currently just desided that we are leaving the gas tank in the original possition, but have to take a good bit out of the bottom of the tank and move the outlet to the front of the tank where it will still be deep. The v8 is out of a 51 F1 to the best of my knowledge. It was on someones garage floor the first I saw it and he didn't get it out of the original truck. The tractor did not run, and was in need of an engine when I got it. The first pic shows it as found. It looks better in the pic than it was, as we are going to try to find a good hood for it, the 1 it has is rusted through on the seam and will be used as a template for the cut we will have to make. We have the original funk 6 hood extention, but have to cut the hood. The front isn't done in the last pic, but I will take a pic today and post it if you want. We have a sand blaster. I was really wandering if you plated the wheels. The guy in the pic is a friend that is helping. We are not a or in business. just week minds, strong bodies and more money than sence. I hope the pics post or I will try again.
