A few inches of clearance between the exhaust system and the gas 
tank is plenty.  Many cars have only 2-3 inches between gas tank 
and exhaust pipe.

If you are into noise, exiting the exhaust in front of the rear 
wheels may be OK.  If you prefer quiet (or at least as much quiet
as you can get in an OleTruck) you should consider dumping the 
exhaust out the back.

Hello all -

I was subscribed to this list about a year ago when I got my first truck, a 
58 shortbed stepside. It was a little too technical for a beginner like me, 
but I enjoy your threads ("running engine!") and now the messages are 
extremely helpful.

I am moving to a dual exhaust on my inline and would really like to have the

exhuast coming out just before the rear wheels on the passenger side, at an 
angle like 45 degrees or something.  I am also planning to later relocate 
the gas tank to between the rails and under the bed (no, this isn't another 
"where should I put my exhaust?" thread.)  Is there any safety issue to this

configuration (exhaust/glass packs too close to gas tank) or am I revealing 
just how green I am at this?

Thanks in advance.

Mike A
