Default RE: two fuel tanks on pusher jet

Yes i beleive the set up is called a header tank or somthing like that if you search usign that term you should be able to find all the info you need if you need to know how its set up i can try and explain
tank #1 = your main tank
tank #2 = tank the feed the engine

set up tank number #1 and #2 as you normally would with the vent and clunk lines

tank a peice of tubing from the muffler to the vent of tank #1 put a peive of tubing between the clunk line of tank #1 to the VENT line of #2 lastly put a peice from your clunk line of your tank #2 to your crab

to refuel simply pull the line off the muffler and of the crab and fill as usual.
