I am replacing the "buggy" tank in the Hydro. It was 10 gallon, but with only a single 1/4"NPT bung in the bottom. Was going to weld in a 1/2" NPT bung for a 10AN feed as well as a top one for 8AN return, but found some repairs on tank I am not keen on. To replace that tank, and weld in new bungs is over $250.00. To me, it makes more sense to replace it with a cell w/foam and do it right fo the same, more or less.
Here are my questions.
I am looking at the Summit 10 gallon red aluminum cell. It has a sump and 2 8AN fittings for outlet, 8AN return and vent. I want the 10 gallon because I do not race and we actually do drive it around in short "sessions".
Here it is:
All the 10 gallon have 2 ea. 8AN outlets. My new system is 10 AN from tank to 4 way regulator. (Magnafuel)
1) Is it OK to "Y" the 8AN outlets to a single 10AN feed to pump?
My plan is to use the Magnafuel Y block between tank and filter/pump inlet.
2) Do these cells mount with the outlets facing the rear of the boat, or the front? Seems silly to ask, but I have never ran one before.
3) Does this cell have a "core" in the foam at the filler to dip the tank level with?
This cell will fit smartly right in the back, but I will have to use 90* 8AN hose ends at the tank outlets if the face the rear. Should be able to run pretty much straight from there.
