After DH09 I made a new box shaped fuel tank that gives me 2 hours of burner time. It is constructed with .100" thick plate steel and welded. I made a new fuel control valve that mounts to the bottom of the tender. It has a blade drive, the same as the hand pump. I moved the link pin holes down 10mm on the hand pump which made it possible the shorten the pump handle. A disc was added to operate the direction shaft. Now one tool does it all, and fits in my pocket.



With the fuel control relocated, I patched the front of the tender.



The hand pump access cover was hinged with Accucraft foot plate hinges.



I shortened and moved the tender drain to hide it behind the lower tool boxes.

So, what is your secret to filling large tanks. Quite an effort to fill the OEM tank but a 2 hour tank....one's arm would cramp up prior to a complete fill!!
