Default Re: Copper Tubing Fuel Tank

Ok, I got the parts to put the tank together except for the filler and what I have in mind for that involves some 90 degree fittings so I can offset the filler from the center line so my full length sight-gauge will run up the top of the tank. I got clear PVC fuel line, not the clear styrene or whatever the generic clear is made from. Plus there's no lettering on it Brass 1/4" 90 degree fittings and near-instant gauge. Also got the brass valve from BGF. I tried to blow compressed air through it and it didn't leak so I'm hoping...

Tomorrow I start cutting the tubes after I take one last stab at un-soldering that cap. Propane camp stove and two torches with brick surrounding it. My efforts so far have not distorted the cap or tubing so maybe this time...
