Default Anderson Baby Spitfire

I need some help with a newly aquired Anderson Baby Spitfire. I know that one of the nipples on the backplate tank will run forward to the carb but where does the second nipple connect to? I know from when I use to fly nitro, it would be the pressure line to the muffler but this engine has none.

Thanks in advance.

Its a long time since you asked this question, but if you still in doubt, the little engine does not need a pressure pipe for it to run . Regards Bill

The second nipple is left open. It will syphon fuel if you fly inverted.

There should be just a plain hole in the tank along w/ the two nipples .The fuel line goes in the hole & to the rear of the tank & then to the needle valve . The two nipples ,one is the filler & one the overflow. A lot of engines back then were like that. Max H . AMA 14958

Thanks All. Big Max you hit the nail on the head. I totally forgot about the hole and you are correct, the carb line runs in the hole. Great, now I know where everything goes.

Thanks again,

Scott
