Asking for help with a drawing

Recommended Posts

I wanted to have a Dean Moon Tank behind the radiator on an approved square bar. This would be plumbed to the fuel cell.

Surely I want to make it as accurate as possible. I did do some searching. One owner who does not use a computer told me you just plumb them together, somehow that doesn't seem to be right, yes?

Any help would be appreciated.

Paul,

Thanks for the speedy reply. Here's the link of the '32 Ford of Gary Stock that I discussed in my first post. I called Gary on Sunday because the email was no good. Gary sold the car in 2001. He told me he doesn't do anything on the computer. He is a experienced drag racer,

that built-up a beautiful machine. I am just tryng to locate a diagram to pumb what Gary has done.

Hi Ron, maybe reaching out to Gary would be your best bet. His phone number and email is included in the article. I am sure he would give you exactly what you're looking for.

There is no reason why you could not run a line from a rear mounted fuel cell, through an electric pump, to the tank in the front. I believe that the Moon tank on this car is mainly for a nostalgic look and is not really necessary. Here is how I would plumb it. Rear mounted fuel cell to inline filter and electric fuel pump. Electric pump to Moon tank. Moon tank now supplies engine driven, mechanical pump. Mechanical pump to barrel valve. Return line would run from barrel valve, back to the top of the moon tank or back to the fuel cell.

Hope this makes sense.

The Ramchargers had a setup like this on their '65 AWB car. According to the book We Were the Ramchargers the electric pump kept the Moon tank always full and somewhat pressurized which avoided starvation upon acceleration. Also helped ease initial start up.

I would also do it as Walter describes.
Many drag cars has the fuel cell or tank in front nowadays to get help from gravity to feed the engine.
