I posted once before regarding the location of a used aux fuel tank any where. Not receiving a single reply of anyone wanting to sell one, how about you out there that do have one, but not wanting to sell it, making a few pictures and posting them of your installation. I would appreciate it immensely.

Thanks,

Thanks Bill. I've got those letters. I'm just a little shy to send off $200 for drawings that may or may not help. I've built tanks out of fiber glass and flown behind them for a number of years, so I don't have a problem with fabricating one, it's just getting it approved that may be the hurdle. I believe I've seen one of those tanks when I was a kid, but don't remember much about it. Of interest is where to pump the fuel to, and what safeguards are needed.

Thanks again,

I have seen the plans, but don’t own the STC paperwork. The plans look good, detailed enough to be able to put it together. That plus the STC paperwork should be enough for approval. But as mentioned, best to check first.

My 108-2 "Miss Rose" has the Metco Aire aux tank installed. I have some of the prints but not all. The tank is in working condition. Feel free to contact me if you want specific pictures and/or just want to chat over the details. I am in New Hampshire, a bit south of Conway, NH in a little town called West Ossipee. I don't know if you are convenient to my location at all for an in person look. I live on a nice grass airport so you could fly here to look it over if you wanted!

Bob, just out of curiosity, what is the weight and location of the tank for W&B purposes?

Thanks,
Brian
