Default Bubble Jett tank location ques?

Bought a 8oz bubble jett tank for my Jett 60lx powered Juno f-20 and noticed on the plans that the tank is above the retracts in the front of the plane which causes the tank to be above the center line of the engine , is this going to be ok?

I also love the look of this engine w/ the black anodized head it is awesome!

Hey there...... thanks for writing.....

Tank location will be fine.

Be prepared with a pair of hemostats to clamp off the fuel feed line after you fill the tank. It will naturally want to flow down hill, and you do not want to flood the engine.

Hyraulic lock is very easy to do with these engines. So as a precaution, pull the engine through by hand a few times before starting to ensure the cylinder is clear of fuel, and remove the fuel line clamp just before starting the engine.
