Default Re: Here I go again,Briggs build

These were 27oz(a weight measure, not fluid) bean cans like Lucks beans come in. I soldered them together then hole sawed an opening and soldered on the neck/cap from another type can. I used a 1/4" brass air fitting for the fuel line outlet. Took about an hour to make.I then sloshed sealed the tank.
has been trouble free being used over a rough unpaved road for quite some time.
Just be sure the cans are sanded at the joint to remove the coating and use some kind of flux.

The large juice can might be easier. SB has a nice thread on making one including a beautiful leather cover. Way above my talent level!
