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.

sorry, I don't know how to get the pics in the text. looks like I have to do 1 at a time. The last pic was with the front end bolted on. This 1 is as found. You can barely see the seem rot above and behind the headlight.

this 1 shows a good view of providing the funk. If you can tell me how to post the pics in the text I'd appreciate it. I don't see where to turn the wrench on this thing to make that happen.

my friend wants me me include a pic of his Oliver hat claiming he was duped into working on a Ford. I threatened to expose him by posting pics of his MM's if he kept it up. Please see "Oliver hat" below

Looks like the least you could do for you friend while he is helping you with your tractor is get him a cap he can be proud of --- say one with Ford on it. :)

You are already more that half way there when it comes to imbedding pictures in text. With your picture hosted just copy the url address. The picture of your buddy and his Oliver hat the address is http://www.tractorforum.com/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=72981 . Type {IMG SRC=http://www.tractorforum.com/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=72981}
Only don’t use brackets use instead < at the beginning and > at the end.

A regular on this board has put together a full explanation of the process. The link below will take you to simple_john’s thread. Take a look at it sometime when you have time.

How To Imbed Pictures In Text

P.S.
You might want to consider starting your own thread. Andy doesn't charge by the thread, so one of your own won't cost your nothing. ;)

hood problems

We are currently trying to work out hood problems. We thought we were going to have to cut some out of the hood, but now are thinking we are glad we planned on buying a new hood in the first place. The reason we took some off of the bottom of the gas tank is we are going to keep the top of the hood even with the top of the Funk hook extension. I like this look a lot better than some pics I have seen of the hood on the v8's raised further so the fuel tank can stay in the original position and as is. With the cuts we made to the original fuel tank we are looking at holding almost 7 gallons of fuel. That is plenty for our purposes. The first pic is the look we are looking for in our hood. The second pic is of the cut we made to our hood trying to figure out our fit. We deemed that to be totally unneccessary, and we just have to support the front of the hood about 2 " further forward that the 2" we were trying for. At least there will be plenty of room for the radiator shop to do their thing. Looks like we will be doing something in the way of a fan shroud to take up some of the space. We are still hoping to have a tilt hood when we are done. The other 2 pics are of the hood raised further- the look we are trying to stay away from. We have the hood tacked back together and bolted on to the hood extension. The front of the hood is hanging off a motor crane till I get my hands on a front axle bolster. Anyone got an extra?

Sorry to say this FF, but only thing I can see is some red X's. Looks like where ever you have them posted is not letting them link.

gas tank pic

I'm sorry I can not make the embedding work. I tried hosting them 2 different places. From now on I'll make the posts 1 image each and try hosting them from here, or link to a photo album someplace else, or I'll post them as attachments and let it go at that. By seeing the first couple attachments have been downloaded close to a hundred times and not much in the way of replies, I'll take that as there is interest in the thread and continue it. Please bare with me in trying to catch up the pics as attachments and my Archie Bunker English. I'm doing the best I can here.

I'm not sure what the problem is. I got red X's at first too. I did a right click on each red X and then clicked on show picture and they all came up fine.

We mig welded it. I had thought about laying some low hydrogen stick on it and build it up some, but it came out pretty good. We're going to put tank sealer in it so it lasts. Thanks for replying.
