It was a shake down run, ran for about half an hour. Now that winters here I can get back to all of the smaller pieces and make some adjustments. Hopefully heading down the home stretch in the spring.

Those knobs look fantastic Gary! If you want to keep those skills finely honed, I can send you my knobs!
Thanks, the knobs worked out ok, the ignition switch took me three tries ;D.

I have run across those fuel valves a couple times.
http://halftrackinfo.com/index.php?topic=228.0

they where also used on the autocrar U7144T trucks
Since that post I have not seen or heard of the set up. I did purchase the valve set from Tom. I'm assuming it was something done during the rebuild??

Gary

Hi Gary I went back through your thread I just picked up this truck a while back. It’s an international M526-11, both the Dash 9’s and the dash 11’s used these fuel valves.







Thought you might like to see this.

Don,
Thanks for posting.  Interesting that there were several uses of these. They look like something you would get from a plumbing supply store.  In my halftrack they are nicely mounted behind the drivers seat. The holes that are drilled for their application was done neatly, where as most modifications done by the post war owner were done crudely.

I got a little more dash work done, the only thing left is the glove box door. Here are the control cables.
