Re: Plumbing questions

Thanks a bunch...I just started framing the interior of my bus this past Saturday...so it will be a few weeks before I get that tank installed. However I can go pick those parts up at the end of this week or early next week, get them installed and pressure test that tank. If everything holds I will have a nice 47 gallon fresh water tank at very little cost. The tank itself was free!

Re: Plumbing questions

Abbott,

Find your local DeVilbiss repair center and ask them for tank grommet # GS-0446 and fuel shut-off valve # GS-0437, they should do the trick. You should be able to get the pair for under $10.00 total.

Other grommet options are MTD # 935-0149 and Kohler # 25 313 03-S, I am still hunting alternate pet-cock part #'s. I know Briggs & Stratton and Kohler have them, but as they are seldom used on anything anymore, I have to try to remember what equipment they were used on to chase the part #'s. Will post 'em if I can find 'em, but the DeVilbiss #'s are current and readily available anywhere that works on DeVilbiss products.

Hope this helps.

Griff

Re: Plumbing questions

Hi Chris. If those are the tanks I end up going with I plan to build a angle (flat/level) bracket for them to lay in. I will then use a sheet of plywood in the bottom of the angle iron mounting bracket with a few 2"X4" blocks to shim up the tanks. Maybe a sheet of ply to build a ramp type mount. I won't really know for certain until l I have the tank (s) I am going to use in my hands.

Some photos here of what I plan to build:

Re: Plumbing questions

Yo Abbott!

The "check". . .(valve). . .is in the mail as of 12:28EST today (grommet too)!

It's coming via snail from the east coast, so give it about a week or so to get there. Please post or email when you receive it, or if you DON'T receive it within 2 weeks. (Sorry, no tracking #, I'm a cheap sob, heh, heh.)

Re: Plumbing questions

i worked at a shop, and we once mailed an item to detroit, which is about 50 miles. the person who was supposed to receive the item kept calling and asking where it was. 93 days later the package finally arrived. no explanation from the usps.

Re: Plumbing questions

Yeah Jason, I know how they are, that's why I asked him to let me know if he didn't get 'em in 2 weeks so I could send out another set. Generally though, I've never had any problems with anything else I've mailed that way ('course there's a first time for everything, and now I've probably jinxed myself ).
