Or you can use it for filling up. So you don't have to keep pulling line off carb.

yes put a small length of fuel line (about 2-3 cm) and a metal tap and use if for refuelling or you can use it as a vent hole when refueling. I have not a third hole so i pull the muffler line every time i refuel. So it gets weak and i have to change it more frequently.

good luck

On most header tanks I have seen, not all the nipples have holes molded through them. I think it's the middle one that needs to be drilled open if you want to use it.

sorry for my ignorance, but why would you need to pull the muffler line out when you refuel? I've never done that?

I'm a little curious as to why you would pull the line off the muffler too.

Most people use a T filter for fueling. That way you don't pull a line off anything.

So when you overfill the main tank the fuel wont go on to fill the muffler.

With some mufflers and tuned pipes its possible to lock the engine by doing this.

Have you painted your tank??? I can usually see when my tank gets full and I stop pumping.

No I haven't painted the tank but with some there is still a large airbubble in the top when you fill and it can be difficult to tell.

Also you may forget anyway I haven't flooded the muffler for ages.

i put the line off the muffler on refueling to let the air go out from the tank more easily. Every time i forget that i have either the fuel leaking from where the lines go in the tank or the pumps nosle come out from the line.
