Is there a screw together type fuel tank stopper that will work on the 600N tank ? This push in thing is not impressive.

I'm planning on replacing my tank stopper with this, since I broke the stock one trying to remove it.

btw your YS-63 powered 600 looks like a nice project.

I'm looking for some hardware like this but it should be the correct diameter for the tank hole:

That's what they should have done in the first place. When I assembled the tank as per instructions, the tube inside is too long by about 5 mm.

The Predator kit I bought a few years ago came with some fittings like that which you could get from them with a bit of searching. Looks like RHPS has some from MA that could also work. Be an easy fit with the stock tank stopper plug and washers on either side .

Did you know if you turn the stopper around and leave the 'fat' side exposed out of the tank its really easy to remove and install.

Where did you get the white gears ? Mine came with gray gears. Are the white ones Delrin ? and quieter ?
