Unhappy Rear leaf spring pocket kit

Why does wagon fuel tank need relocating?

I don't think it does unless you want to run exhaust past it.

Default Thanks.

In the ad it states that wagon fuel tanks need relocating if using this kit and that may have been the reason,thanks again.

Mac, I think Rick's right. I installed a pocket kit on my '55 wagon (not CPP but probably identical), and I don't see the problem. Mind you, the car isn't fully back together, but it doesn't look there will be a problem.

I'm pretty sure running the exhaust through there is going to be a problem, though - it's pretty crowded. . Deleting the spare tire well might help, but I'm not sure if I'm up for that. I think I'm going to avoid the whole issue and dump the exhaust ahead of the rear end.

I have a spring pocket in my Sedan Delivery and it has the original gas tank and a nine inch as well. The centre of the housing is extremly close to the tank but it does clear.
You could still get your exhaust through there and go over the spring beneath the chassis. I have seen it done and I think it was actually on this site that I saw it done.
After much looking and measuring and looking again I decided to run my pipes under the diff , tank and even the spare wheel well.
They can not be seen from side on and you really have to look to see them from behind.
I also have some small resinators under the wheel well to quiten the car down and they tucked up nice in there.
Some people dont like doing the exhaust under the diff , me being one of them, but I can honestly say that it is definatly not a problem on this car.
I will post some photos tommorow.

Ok here is some pictures. I have made the exhaust so if I get a flat it wont touch the ground and it is still low enough to change a wheel without taking the tailpipe off.
Like I said I am not a big fan of having my exhaust under the diff but I needed it in a hurry so I could get the car registered and that is also why ther is a pair of resonators at the back to quiten it down a bit. It had to be 95db at 1 meter and it was 97.4db but with those two little resonators it went down to 94db what a load of BS for registration.
This is sitting on a crate about a foot off the ground

and this is from right under the bumper

and this is from an angle under the bumper

and one more from a distance

Looking good
You registration it in Sydney Australia/ California
East Coast Joke.
Now in North Carolina anything over 35 years old does not even get yearly inspection.

We have inspections on anything older than three years, not that hard if you know the right people.
Also for my first registration I had to get an engineering certificate for everything modified which also cost $1600.00.
I had to pay $3700.00 for my first years registration which include stamp duty and third party personal insurance and Engineers cert. From now on it will be about $1000.00 until it goes up again.

Thank you for the pictures. Looks as if you have to pay to play down under.
