For those of you using the outer hole on the tank, how long of a clunk line are you using? Please don't turn this into a center hole vs outer hole, lynx vs Hayes, or fuel magnet vs lynx moas vs bubbless vs header tanks! LOL
Thanks

One tip get the newer tank from dfc you will have less leaks. The cork likes to leak in the middle. But get back to your question Line will stretch start with 1.75 what clunk are u going to use and line.

Just miss the back of the tank. I put a wheel collar or a bearing on the fuel line behind the clunk to weight it down. It sucks up every drop.

I'm using a MOAS and lynx line. The center hole has a plug that is epoxied in.

So you don't use a line long enough to reach the far side of the tank, just enough to reach the back?

Yep just the back, NOT the far side. If you did that, it can get stuck in the corner. Use a fuel magnet (I recommend the Lynx version)and it will work perfect down to the last drop. Just make sure it is a hair off the back of the tank.

Like I said earlier, stick a bearing on the fuel line pushed up against the magnet. The extra weight on the magnet will guarantee it stays in the fuel and you can use regular fuel tubing.

Thanks, I'm am using the lynx magnet, will add some weight, and shorten the line. I currently have it installed with line long enough to reach the far side of the tank, but was moving the heli around and the line appeared to get hung up. So I'm glad I asked.

No problem. Been using this method for the past six years and have never had a problem.

I am using the outer hole on my 700 with an O.S. Bubbless Clunk with "O" ring installed as pictured here. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...1P?I=LXXF25&P=8

Also use a UK Header Tank.

The tank from the dfc will fit a nitro pro? Do you need anything special to make it fit ?
