i figure putting the fuel cell at bed rail


Are you going to cat track your fuel line from the tank to the engine?  


Naw, set the cell in a mounted frame that is bolted to the lower carriage rail with a qd fitting for fuel out and return line. a 5 gal tank won't weigh much, and it would be riding on the outside of the bed beam. look at it as riding to the outside, where the tire/wheel would be. 
plus nothing is set intone, even my current mill build. iv only got the 20' 2x6 beams drilled/tapped for the 2x2 3/8" angle to be bolted to, the 33 1" holes for the leveling bolts, and the 11 bunk cross beams cut. 
when i return from the land of constant rain and hippies, ill order the leveling bolts and trail rail bolts, get the leveling nuts welded on, install the bolts, level the beams, then jig them and start welding in the bunk beams.

Thats probably a $2500 bandsaw.  I think plasma cutters, plasma/waterjet tables and the proliferation of cheap diy CNC has dramatically shrunken the market for vertical bandsaw users.. Meaning it may take a while to find a buyer in that range who doesnt already have one.. But.. Its a serious machine. Lot of floor space.

So my first thought on that big Peerless is why tear it all apart to just rebuild it? Maybe trim it down a bit, build a carriage, and end up with a vertical saw rather than a horizontal saw. It would have some advantages when dealing with big logs.
