    Default bungs welded

    The Wife and I recently picked up a TX 19 and we need to have a couple bungs welded into the aluminum tanks. They have 3/8" npt bungs in the top of each tank which we'll use for the return lines, but will need a -12 welded in at the bottom of each tank for supply lines.
    Anyone know a good welder in the Los Angeles area?
    The tanks have been thoroughly douched out with simple green, dish soap and hot water.

    Just to give you an idea. Here is what I did. Too bad I am on the East Coast.

    That's the way to do it. Safer as well.

    I drilled out and tapped my existing 3/8" pickup to 1/2". Then I took a 90* adapter 1/2" NPT to -10 and soldiered in a brass 1/2" dia tube in and just threaded it in. Worked great, you just have to sweat one joint Mine had another bung on top for a vent/return line. Good luck

    Former Miller owner ???? Whats up Matt, lets see some pics of this new ride
    If you want to drop those tanks off in my neck of the woods, I have a buddy that might be able to do it for you for a better price than a shop. He did my tanks and they turned out bitchin. I can ask him today.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Is that my TX prior to paint? Hard to tell, but the boat in front looks like one of the pre-paint pics Talyn sent me.
    ....edit.... Upon closer inspection and comparison, I'd say that's it.
    Any idea what it ran? With what power?

    Actually I'm still a Miller owner until I find someone to drag the 75 outta here. Might be tough though, as my motor and pump are going into the TX.
    The new ride is currently gutted and awaiting a date @ Jack's.
