Align, Align, Align..

A plea to ask you to make one hole (instead of two)..That will solve the fuel leaking problem.

Easy alternative is to seal the center hole by epoxy the cap on the tank, and use the outside hole. Easy access to the fuel lines and clunk without removing the tank.

not even an issue.

Align needs to fix the crappy bearing blocks and the shoulder bolts.

Anthony,that sounds good and dandy but I think your fixing one problem and creating another because now your going to have loads of fun removing that sucker if you need to replace a tank. I could see how this will work if you epoxy the opposite outer hole.

Another alternative is chuck that crappy stock fuel tank plug and replace it with another fuel tank nipple/grommet setup with a small piece of tubing and plug it. Works wonders and never had a leak since this modification on mine. The 600Ns part also fits for this particular application. Originally, I believe some kits were shipped with plugs that are too hard and not creating a propper seal. When I purchased my spare tank set... that plug was worse than my first one so I just ditched the idea of a plug altogether.

No problem with tank removal. If you are worried about removal, you can file a slight curve on the main frame at the area where the stopper goes through.

The problem I had was a over-sized hole with inconsistent wall thickness around the center hole.

How long is this lasting? I am running pump YS and not sure if the pressure will make the fuel tank leaks again.I am a noob flyer from Singapore! Team Nitro Magic

Wouldn't be better to use some sort of flexible adhesive like plain silicone ? shoe-goo is flexible but it will eat the rubber.

Did it once last year and till now still not leak. I used 30mins. After a few months, the epoxy will change colour, but no problem. I am using YS too.

BTW, you put a pump on your YS? Otherwise, stock YS is not pumped.

I drilled a hole in the plug and put a small screw through it with a washer and nut on the outside and just tightened the nut down until it sealed, sorta like a airplane tank. That way I can remove it if I want to, but haven't had to yet.

Works fine also.

I saw that solution on my field but they used a round servo arm and nut inside and the screw and washer from outside worked just fine.
