Question Galloway info wanted

Just bought an original Galloway cart from Steve Oswald, He's a great guy with a fine collection. Does anyone have a picture of the wood tongue assembly.I need to build one. Also does anyone know how the gas tank mounts to the cart.I have read something about four bolts, but I don't know how it gets fastened down.

Default Re: Galloway info wanted

Dale is this cart for the bigger engines ie 5hp, 7 and 9(?). Do you have a picture especially where the pipe axle(s) attachs to the I beam(s)? If not, explain to me how they are held together i.e. U-bolts or two bolts with strap metal.

I have two carts/trucks with the sawing attachment and they're different.

See my older style with roundrod @

There's pictures there of the tank also, but don't believe I used the correct mounting as there appears to be evidence of a band halfway down on the tank.

Hope this helps alittle

Exclamation Re: Galloway info wanted

My 5 HP Galloway fuel tank had 4 flat lugs soldered to the base of the tank. They are about 1" wide, about 3" long and 1/8" thick. About 1 1/4" of the lug extends beyond the edge of the tank, and there is a 1/2" hole drilled thru the exposed part. The hole is 1/4" from the outside edge. Outside of the lug is rounded. Tank is mounted to cart, level with engine base, with 4 - 3/8x1 1/2 square head lag bolts
