Brief Description: Installed tank senders/fitting and tested tanks
I borrowed three 5-gallon fuel cans from the hangar and put 4 gallons in each (since my fuel tank capacity is 12 gallons). Next I reinstalled my fuel senders, this time with EZ-Turn on the face of the rubber gasket and on the 4 or 5 threads closest to the head of each screw. I also used EZ-Turn (a comparable product to Fuellube) on the fuel drain and finger screen threads. Nothing was used on the male/female AN parts. While I filled each tank, Joy watched for any sign of leakage, and the good news is that her job was totally boring. No action whatsoever. When it came time for tank #2, we moved the first tank to a higher level and drained the fuel. I put ohm meters on both to see if the fuel senders were working. As one was going down, the other was slowly rising. Very cool. Now I get to top off the third fuel tank of the night...the one in my Honda Pilot. My wing tanks are ready to install.
