That is where Mr. Dremel comes in. Works like a charm.

Does anyone have the part # for the new tank?

Without a primer, I guess fuel is added by holding the exhaust port closed and cranking a bit?

Also, what are some of the better tank guards around?

Make sure to post some pics with the MGT primer bulb ThermalRD. I am very intersted to hear what you have to say about it. I am running the new primerless tank with the header tank. I have been using a syringe to prime my system.

Just got my 25 primerless tank.

Cant it just be primed by holding a finger on the exhaust outlet and turning the engine over?

Yes that is what most people do. Or you can blow into the stinger to get the fuel system primed.

Yes the S-25 tank still has the self leaning issue. It isn't near as bad as it was with the S-21 tank. I would say it probably happens around the 3/4 mark with the S-25 tank. I have also left my header tank on. Here are some pictures of mine.

you can use the stock tank with header tank and it should work fine.

Heres my setup. I'll put it thru several tanks at the track today. I already ran it, and have had no problems at all.

How do you like that fuel bulb ThermalRD? Is that the one from the MGT or does someone actually make one?

Yes, it is from the MGT. It works really well, thats why i bought one for the savage. I'll put this setup on the track tonight, but i seriously doubt i'll have any issues with it.
