Concerning the long strap, what does the inside (right) end tie to? I must be missing something. Picture would be great. Thanks

Check Wes' photo galleries.

There is a little welded bracket on the floor on the right side of the tank. The strap attaches to that. the short curved stiff piece goes on the outboard end and hooks to a loop on the inside of the tub.

Right vs left. Always call out right or left as if you were sitting in the driver's seat. The right (Passenger side) end of the starp attachment is illustrated in TM 9-8012 page 166 figure 50. The left (Driver's side) is only illustrated in the ORD 9 on page 64 figure 03-6 in the side view.

Views can be had in my album:

Look close and you'll see that straight across from the center floor bracket that I marked is the bracket just below the doorsill.

I'm referring to the "right". I can't really discern from your pictures nor page 166 of the TM. Is it welded to the floor? If it's welded, then mine is gone.

Look in my M38's album. It's welded

It's gone. Midwest has them for MBs and one is on order. Apparently MBs attach with bolts. Don't know if I'll have it welded or use bolts. I don't plan on competing it so what difference does it make. Restoring it for my son - he won't care (or know).

It is a very simple 90 degree bracket. One could fabricate it himself. Then just drill two holes in it and bolt it to the tub.

Hopefully the MB bracket is similar. The MB floor center is not raised or humped like the M38. The part numbers are absolutely different.

MB's bracket, fuel tank hold down inner front:

ORD # 7368264, WO# A2953

M38's bracket, fuel tank hold down inner front:

ORD # 7375015, WO# 633075

I took a closeup of mine today:
