GUys,

I am a newbie to gasser. On the G26, does it use regular car spark plug, ones that I can get from auto shop? How often does it need to be change?

Where can I get a fuel bottle with a pump? Can't seem to find them

I notice there's 3 fuel line on the fuel tank, and one fuel line is not connected, is that the one connect to fuel pump?

Can I just pour gas with a water bottle into the tank, while I am waiting for to order the fuel bottle?

Well, I can tell you that the plug is not the same as a Chevy S10!
I purchased a spare when I bought the engine. A replacement should
be available locally. Haven't changed mine.

I use a gas container like you would use for your lawn mower.
For a pump I use Dave Brown Products Six Shooter available at
Tower and others. You need the Gas version.

I use the 3rd line to fuel.

I use NGK CMR7H plugs available at most autoparts stores. Those that carry NGK, anyway. Depending on how well it's tuned, you should get a full season on it. I keep spares on hand just in case.

I use a Jersey Modeller fuel tank. There is a suppplier in AZ that has them cheap. Do a google search on it. While they are a bit costly, they have two filters and since I started using it I have never had to clean the last chance filter in the carb. I get my spark plugs from AutoZone. I change them at the beginning of the season. I've never fouled one and if you keep your oil mix correct with clean filtered gas you should be fine.

I notice there's 3 fuel line on the fuel tank,

One fuel line is pickup (supply) line from fuel tank. One is the return line from the carb fuel pump, The third is the vent line. I pull the return line from the carb to use for filling, only because it is easy to get to. You could also use the vent line, but mine is not accesable easily..

EDIT: The short piece of fuel line sticking out of the carb is used to turn the choke lever.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

DOes the pump simply pump fuel in the gas tank, or does it also pump fuel to the carburetor?
Can I just fill the tank with a water bottle, or a funnel till I get the fuel pump system?

jascamera,

You will need to pump fuel into the tank. I have a tee in the return line with a clamp that I use to fuel with. You may have a priming bulb on your carb. Use that to get the fuel from the tank to the carb. The bulb does not introduce fuel into the engine, just to get fuel into the carb. The carb has a pulse fuel pump built into it so it supplys all the fuel you need when flying.

Get a Jersey Modeler fueler and be done with it. It filters the fuel and you can either fill or empty the tank with it. It shouldn't cost much and you really can't use a water bottle safely. Remember this is gasoline we are talking about here, not Nito or kero.
