Just asking.
ILL POST SOME PICS AS I JUST GOT A FEW TANKS OFF LINE TODAY IN THE MAIL (T&A). I POSTED THE TANK WRONG, ITS ONLY 24 OZ. BUT SHOULD BE FINE PROVIDING SUFFICENT VENTING TO PREVENT VACUUM ON THE TANK AND MAKING SURE OF ANGLE OF TANK AN HIGHTH/ GAS HEAD PREASSURE/VOLUUM FOR GOOD FLOW.I PUT AN INLINE FILTER AND VENT OFF THE TOP WITH A COILED UP FUEL LINE TO PREVENT BACK FLOW WHEN FILLED.ILL FILL IT WITH A 1'' STAINLESSPIPE/90 DEG I FABED ALONG WITH A CAP I FABBED AS WELL, I DRILLED A 1'' HOLE IN SOME SPARE PLEXYGLASS PIECES AND WILL DRILL THROUGH THE DUMMY TANK WITH 4 HOLES AROUND THE 1'' HOLE.... ILL DO 4 CLEAN RIVITTS HOLDING THE TWO TANKS TOGETHER... ILL POST PICS AS THEY TELL THE BUILD BETTER THAN I. I HAD TO FLIP THE TANK UPSIDEDOWN FOR GRAVITY FLOW TO WORK PROPERLY AS YOULL SEE IN THE LAST PICS.SPENDING TIME WITH MY BOYS UNTIL 8;00 45 MIN. THEN ILL PUT THEM TO BED AND CONTINUE THE TANK...PLEASE EXCUSE THE SPELLING...( ALWAYS)
