Default Where can I find this fuel filler set?

Guys,

I am wanting to purchase this fuel filler system. Can someone tell me where to I can buy it? This system is different than a standard fuel dot as the fuel tubing goes on the extended flange. All you need to do is pull the o-ring cap plug off and plug the filler in and start pumping. There is no fuel line to pull out.

I bought it about 5 years ago and used them on several gas aircraft and now need to purchase some more. I hope one of you experts can help.

Thanks

The slimline unit is the same principle but is not the same hardware. Any other suggestions?

Thanks Greg,

That looks close but it seems a little smaller than what I am using. I went to Sullivan's web page and could not find anything like what you posted. I wanted to see what the male probe portion looked like. Again, the sullivan seemed small and it my be only for nitro fuels. I seem to remember that the manufacturer was not a common company you hear in the rc industry.

Any other suggestions???

RUNVOUS, Here's another picture of what i found on Tower Hobbies web page there are two different fittings in the kit that you can use for your fill side of your tank. These are made by sullivan products.

RUNVOUS, i've just gone to the slimline products web site and found out that there are two different fueling systems. The one that you are looking for is called the F-1 fueler.

If you would have read my posts you would have already known that.

Like I said above. I have a couple you can have if you want.

It was only 2 stamps, it is not necessary. At least you can get some use out of them.
