post number 63
Here are the top and back pieces for the sears oil tank.
Here are the bottoms after being bent around and into shape. They turned out pretty good and are very close, but still require a lot of fitting, bending and work to make work.
Here are the baffles and the tops.
Normal bungs are just soldered to the back side and flush with the tank. I drilled out the original .1875 holes to .375. Then I cut a .045 deep shoulder on the bungs. This is what the assembly looks like before welding. Check out how the bung is flush with the top surface of the tank.
Here is one all welded up. This works pretty well.
