Brilliant work as usual Phill, what capacity is the tank ?
Beginning to wishing I'd gone bigger for mine.

Sensible size then, unlike mine. Lol
Think I used 15 litres at Kingsfold last year over the two days.

Good progress on the fuel tank today, the two mounting brackets have been made and fitted. There is a bit of fettling to do yet, I'll round off the corners to match the brackets on the tank before painting them.

The trusty Oxford arc welder was wheeled out again for this job:

With the brackets set up square, I used transfer punches to mark the holes.

The bolts are all metric, but altered slightly to look the part. The ones which attach the tank have a register turned on the head, so they locate in the oversize holes in the tank brackets.

I did think that the brackets would want bracing to the engine but they are totally immovable and I don't foresee any troubles with vibration. The tank may well get rubber mounted to take up any flex in the trolley whilst moving it about. The large pipe fitting is fitted where the drain plug goes, it attaches to another bit of pipe and allows the tank to be supported in the vice for painting.

Phill.
