The early ones are not too bad. Haven't found any stock ones that fit the thread on the tanks. The later ones can impede flow but I usually drill the slag out of them before using them. Where can I get a stock one that fits or rather who makes stock ones that fit? Given the tiny amount of fuel that's needed it would be hard to impede to that amount. Sometimes there's gunge in the tank that could clog the little filter inside the tank but I discard those and use an in-line filter.
The little tear dtop HT tanks are such pretty tanks that it's a shame they aren't better made.
