Where does the top hose coming out the valve go to? Is that your fill line?

I use a single line straight from tank to carb and disconnect from carb to fill. No valve to introduce a potential air leak.

Have you maiden here already? Looking good.

I have been using safety wire on turbine fuel lines for the past 15 years without any issues. I believe you can get it at local harbor freight store.

So get a smaller diameter rod and bend the clamps you do have around it to make them smaller.

where i can find
Try here:

http://www.zoro.com/search?q=mini+hose+clamps

Lost my canopy "cotter pins" on my 800XX....they had the perfect replacements....$5 for 25 or so.

And they list "good specs"...so you can properly choose which one to get...

And they have 1-800 tech support....and they'll point you to the correct item when you tell 'em what you need.....

FWIW

from PistolPete

My advice would be the same a Pete. The less thingyies in the fuel line the better. Unlike nitro which uses much more fuel per minute and usually higher rpms any little air bubble in the line or from an air leak is far more dramatic with a gasser. A gasser sips fuel and runs at a higher temp. The same size bubble on a nitro may be a hicup,,but on a gasser could be far worse. On my gassers I fuel it up ,,prime etc,, fire it up ,,run abit on the ground if the first flight ,,take off up right for a bit,,,go high and gently flip her to burp any air ,,then I am good to go. I have no fuel valve. I pull the line off the carb to fill. I use no clamps on anything external fuel inlet valves and just replace all lines every year or so. OR cut off the line that was on the nipple after a season to retain a seal.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

small narrow zip ties work just fine I have use larger ones on outboard with no problems of fuel leak or air leaks

you want to use ones that's no longer than about 3 inches long and they are quite narrow so they should work just fine
and you can get them in different colors as well

Lets do the time warp againnn !

Get some of the zip ties with the curved head. They work better than the standard head in most applications. You can tighten them without getting that little pinch of material in the gap left with the standard square head.

Consider running straight from tank to carb to avoid potential leaning out. Safety wire in very small gauge is a great line secured. Sullivan uses it with their fuel tanks.
