Make the tank a three line unit - carb - filler- muffler pressure. Block off one side of the filler and you're good to go. You can fill it no problem this way, the air in the tank escapes out the muffler and it'll give you a visual indication when the tanks are full as it piddles on your shoes...
Hemikiller...This sounds like a good way to go how do you block off the side that would go to the carb so you don't get a leak there?
my first thought was plug a piece of hose and plug it? but that won't hold up over time and could leak inside the plane.
