How did you get on changing the fuel tank over?

I have a wave shark 18 ic and the 75cc tank only lasts about 3/4 mins.

The way that I built that tank for you is so that the fittings go towards the engine. With the bow up in the running position the fuel will run towards the pickup. Since most boats are made for right hand turns the pickup is also in the right corner. Several people have converted their CEN Racing boats over to this since I first posted it in www.radiocontrolzone.com . I went to Toledo for a Fun Run yesterday and one person there had seen the posting and showed me his boat that he had converted to the SS-4 tank.

Yeah, send it to me and I can do it for you. Just remember to send enough postage for the return trip. The tank cost me 85 cents more than you sent me to ship it back. If it's a Prather 215, I have one here still in the package in Stainless steel that I can start on. You might need a tiny piece of brass or aluminum tubing to fit between that prop and shaft.
