I bought a 1939 JD a few years back in parts, the two fuel tanks were off, and so was the hood, i can figure out what holds the tanks on, there are some brackets on the frame/chassis. isn't there suppose to be some kind of brackets that go around the tank to hold them together? I've seen parts break down but can't figure it out, any help will be appreciated. thanks grm

No.
Both the fuel tank and the small 1 gallon gas tank are one unit.
Take a look at the photos below of the tank for our 39B.
