Good luck on getting the Ronson fuel valves. I called SS about two or three months ago and they didn't have any. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/sad.gif Maybe they have received some since I called.

the Ronson fuel valves are (or were) the same ones used in a Ronson cigarette lighter. You might check at a local smoke shop.

Indeed there are different threads. So make sure you get the valve before you drill the hole.

For the valves try Roundhouse. It is where I bought mine about 6 of them. And for the tap I used MSC www.mscdirect.com. Only a few dollars for the tap compared to E-Taps at almost 30.00 Both companys were fast with response and shipping.
