    Default Fuel Tank vents done..pics

    I machined these up and made them shorter too (other design they were too long). I also threaded the inside with 1/4" NPT thread. Here are some pics. FYI: I had the vented caps off and apart (knocked the roll pins out) and polished them a little. I wanted to see how vented they are. Not much in my book. Pretty restrictive if you ask me. Anyway here are the pics.

    I think I say this every time, but you do some very nice machine work. And you can lay down a killer bead with that welding torch!!!

    I am not a machinist or welder by trade at all. I work at a Large Bank HQ at sit in a cube all day. Ya Kyle, the vented caps flow the same amount of air a drink/straw stirrer. Thanks.

    they look real good, I hope you're going to put little screens in them though. You need a way to keep the spiders and dirt out
