Does anyone have a picture from the 1947-53 factory assembly manual for the 1/2 ton showing the in-cab gas tank and straps, grommets, etc

Most likely you are referring to what is often referred-to as the 1947-1954 [Chevrolet] Truck Factory Assembly Manual?

That is actually a 1954/1955-1st assembly manual.

The fuel/gas tank design changed in 1954 - in particular, the fuel “pickup” in the tank, and where the fuel line exited the tank.

Otherwise, other parts of the illustration should be helpful for earlier years?

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler. []
