Help!
Gas Newbie has questions

Hi folks,

As I get ready for my next project, top flight giant p47 kit, I have a few questions. First, I have Zenoah G62. I bought a Slimline Pitts for it and I am wondering if I need to use some gasket sealant or special lube when I mount it to the engine along with the gasket? Anyone?

Also, I'm planning on a 32oz dubro tank. Anyone have any fit issues with this tank?

Final question. If I'm using 5/32 barbed dubro fittings, does my tubing need to be 5/32's?

Sorry for all the dumb questions.

Kevin

Kevin, just make sure the muffler flange is flat and use Permatex hi temp RTV. I strongly suggest using a mounting bracket from the muffler body to a mounting bolt. Either 1/8" or 5/32 tubing would be just fine.

X2 on the flat surfaces and RTV or other high temp silicone
