Default Building Questions IV



Greetings All:

I took the plunge and am constructing a uni-flow tank for the Ee-Zee One. So far, a very enjoyable process and not as difficult as expected.

A question on placement of the uniflow tube. On the photo above are two white dots on the tank's front. Should I go with the upper dot or the lower one? I suspect that the lower location would require an vertical rise and then a forward-facing right angle. Or perhaps it should be installed through the top of the tank? Any help would be appreciated.

I would go from the top of the outside wedge myself. Mostly just to keep the tubing shorter, and easier to bend. It doesn't really matter, as long as the tubes are close to each other at the back corner, and the air tube is above a bit , so the fuel doesn't siphon out. (in your case, the top hole may be best.) Just have the front of the tube in a handy place to service, and eventually in some clean air if you are using flexible tubing in front of the brass.

Aspeed:

I like your suggestion of going with the top of the tank rather than either of the two white spots. For the back corner, I'll place the uniflow tube maybe a quarter inch forward of the fuel inlet and slightly above it as you suggest. I just can't get my mind around the siphoning problem (i.e., cause and direction) as I've not used a tank like this. But I'll gladly take your word for it.

Many thanks!

I think it just needs to exit on the top side of the tank, just so fuel doesn't dribble out while it is sitting. Inside the tank, yes just 1/4" in front of the pickup is good.
