Hi Ever one Ok I am going to get right down to the problem here. I have a Bell47 and I placed 2 fuel tanks in the fuel tank pods. But the problem was it kepth flooding so then I place a heading tank on the bottom so that would solve that problem BUTTTTT it still likes to flood out so I then placed a valve with a open and close handle on it that seems to work out a lot better but now I am haveing a problem with the engine speeding up when the fuel runs from one tank to the other then to the heading tank. I know this set up can be done But HOW????. Here is what I have runing from one tank to the other. I have from the right pod I have a line to the muffler and one line to the left pod which is connected to the left pod is vent line and from the left pod coming out it goes to the header tank then from the header to the carb. But I am wondering if I should place the left pod vent tube instead of it running up like a vent I should run it down in the tank to make it easy for the fuel to vent over to that tank. I hope I am not confusing anyone here. If any one out there can help please do and if any dirgrams out there please let me know where. Thank You Ed "Allway Against The Wind"

Just run the muffler line to a Y and then both tanks. Also Y both tanks together then to the fuel cut-off and then to the carb. If you still want to use a header tank, put it between the Y and the fuel cut-off.
