some electric fork lifts/pallet jacks use them. i wonder if you could contact your local raymond, hyster, yale, crown, etc dealer to purchase one?

I actually thought you were referring to a battery at first.

I used to find them in the toy department at Bock's Department Store in Glendora when I was a kid...similar to these...

I've seen some good ones on ebay, but I've also seen a lot of bad ones. So if you know your stuff you might start there. You would be wanting a huge one, so that might be a bit harder to find. I would suggest asking at: HHOforums.com. There are a lot of people who know there stuff there.
Have you considered supplemental propane injection? It's likely less expensive, easier to install, and you don't have to mess with sensors. (but you do have to buy propane).
I would highly recommend you look into building the unit yourself, just do a lot of research first.

I have a 1974 ford f900 with a 477 superduty v8. It makes 253 hp @ 3400 rpm, and 415 fp @2000 rpm. it has a 600 cfm holley 4 barrel, and 7.5 to 1 compression. I believe hho would be the way to go. I figure I need between 1.5- 2.5 lpm. the nice thing is, no computers, no smog.bad thing is, 3 mpg. these engines will last forever if you don't over rev them. I never take it over 3,000 rpm

The big question with HHO, is what is the alternator rated for?
From what i've herd; you'll get best results with from .5 to 1L per liter of your engine displacement. That come from mostly people who don't use diesel, but I don't think it makes much of a difference

Look in to nickle plates, I think they are the way to go. More pricey than stainless, but could be worth it.

I am curious how they decide how much hho to use. I have also read .5 to 1 per liter. , but I have also read .25 to .5 L. does that take into account how much horsepower. for example, to determine carb. cfm, you take the engine size, and the rpms , and my engine is a low rpm, low horsepower engine. is there a problem with running too much hho? . My truck has a very large , heavy duty alternator, so it could probaly handle more hho without stressing the electrical system. My engine is gasoline, by the way
