Default Perfect Fuel Tanks

I am new to control line building and have alot to learn. I am wondering if anyone out there knows any thing about a 3/8oz perfect tank. The tank is triangular and has 3 pcs of brass tubing going into it. One is at the top front of the tank and two others at the side. The side ones are offset one is further up from the other. Which would be used to fill ,which is the ventand which would I use to pressure the tank. This tank is to be usedwith a norvel .074 with pressure being obtained from the muffler.

3/8oz is not very much for an 074. Have you run it on this amount of fuel?
Use the top vent to fuel up.. When the tank is full fuel will flow through the bottom one as it reaches in to the top of the tank. The bottom one use for the pressure line. You will have to "Plug" the fueling line for flight to make pressure.

If you bought the tank it should have simple instructions, I guess 3/8 of an ounce is ok for control line...Rog

Try here: http://brodak.com/wedge-fuel-tank-3-8-oz.html

The tank is mounted with the pickup tube (the one in the wedge) outboard so fuel will be forced to it. The other tubes extend to the other side of the tank...that is, the top one runs to the bottom, etc.

You fill into the top tube until fuel overflows from the bottom one.

Brodak bought the rights to Perfect tank some years ago.
