Looks like just an old propane tank, probably tossed in and just ended up there.

When I saw it, one word jumped out at me- hulk[xx(]

Wonder if anyone will want it?

I'm thinking accessory coolant filter? Looks a lot like the oil filter, but it seems to be plumbed in with 5/8" hose. Kind of low-res pics.

I agree with Gord that it is plumbed for something, it appears to have the remnants of heater hose on it. The canister is also not as wide as the oil filter that is on the truck. It also appears that there is a governor plate below the carb.

When I saw this thing on Saturday night I was struck by all the vines under the hood. Some of you may have read about a similar truck that George Hamlin rescued from Bull Run and restored.

The can looks like it could have been some sort of bomb. And it looks like it went off!

Just a guess....could it have been connected to the object that is
located under the dash and glove box, and looks like a heater unit?

Just a WAG,(wild a** guess), it might be a coolant resivoir for that strange looking heater under the dash. Maybe it was to make sure there was plenty of extra hot coolant for the heater. After all, that's a pretty big area to try to heat when it's cold.[:0]

I know that old truck is a pile of junk, or maybe less than junk, but I would sure like to have a truck like that in good shape.

Could the item up for discussion be a part of a coolant system? I may be wrong but isn't this truck a milk truck or some such thing?

After 25 years of import cars only, I went to work for the USN Transportation Dept. in 1987. Big trucks and busses were new to me. While replacing the spin-on coolant filter on my first service I read 'Precharge Filter' on the metal case. Okay, that makes sense to me, don't want to introduce air into the system, so I started filling it with coolant a little at a time. One of the other guys noticed me and set me straight:D

To tie this in with the other anti-freeze thread...
Your comment has not aged one bit...
Adding DCAIV coolant additive to diesel engines is nothing new...
But...
The new 'Long Duration' (low maintenance) anti freeze's have a different compound,
and you [u]cannot</u>mix the old with the new,
or put the new stuff into an old system with an older style DCA additive filter.
So....
The manufacturers have a 'blank' spin on filter that is used with the new anti-freeze
(The cooling system is the same...only the anti freeze has changed)..
I get calls all the time about those 'defective' empty spin on coolant filters that don't 'rattle';)
