While preparing the underside of the gas tank for priming, I noticed 3 nuts welded to the tank frame, yet the hole on the right side front (at gas tank) appears to never had a nut welded there.
Is there supposed to be a nut welded there?

If I am not mistaken, there should be four welded nuts at the rear of the tank for attachment to the instrument panel, 2 welded nuts on each side of the front to attach the doglegs, and 2 wire harness clips along the right underside for the battery cable and other wires. Finally some had a hole on the right near the welded seam between the tank and hood. This had another wire harness clip attached with a bolt.
Hope this helps.

My 48 also has 3 welded nuts and 1 open hole. Dale.

My 47, 48, and 49 all have 3 welded nuts, with the front one on the right being just a hole in addition to one near the seam as was mentioned to allow mounting the wiring harness clip Bighoss showed. I have seen some with those clips spot welded to the tank, but none of mine are. The welded ones may have been the tanks for the short eared support, I do not remember for sure.

Ken, thanks for asking the question....I have mine off also, and wondered why I had one hole and 3 welded nuts.....Mine just has a nut and bolt with no strap, so I was a bit stymied....Strap must have gotten lost since 57.....Easy enough to make one.... Dave
