Quote from: fokker on September 08, 2018, 21:30:56 pmMuch the same as Charlie. One pickup and 2 vents usually underneath and behind the engine . Vents made from either commercial fittings or soldering copper or brass tube to a bracket screwed to f1. I join the breathers with an offcut of Tyron stops the smell and any spillage during transport and storage . If possible put the tank on c of g remember your carb is pumped so no problems with starvation. On a 20cc I'd go for an 18 or 20 oz tank and 3/32 tubing. Keep your vent pipes as high as possible again help stops spillage I will often pass them over the top of the standoff's. For stopping the engine I use a rcxel opto kill switch or on a mag engine set the trainer switch as engine kill.

Quote from: alangorham on September 26, 2018, 09:48:34 amI use black neoprene tube as the clunk line in preference to Tygon in smaller petrol setups.Some here:http://www.modelshopleeds.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=17450&osCsid=abff6kke9dr1qfcs1f21abr0k6
Quote from: alangorham on September 26, 2018, 13:33:41 pmI have been careful with it and have not had a problem. I do add Briggs & Stratton fuel fit to my petrol, but no idea if that helps or not. I'd (naively) hope that fuel tube sold for petrol engines by the engine manufacturer would be suitable for it's intended job though...
Quote from: Bad Raven on September 26, 2018, 07:49:57 amStill stuck on getting flexible enough tubing for inside the tank. Sullivan and Tygon are both too stiff and felt clunk is ineffective at following fuel. (This is a small tank for a 20cc engine, so clunk tube is quite short)
Quote from: The Saint. (Owen) on September 28, 2018, 10:19:50 amWhy not make a heavier clunk?

Quote from: paulinfrance on October 06, 2018, 17:39:32 pmHow can you tell that's it's genuine Tygone ?, and is it all yellow or does it exist in blue ?.
