New Tiller Gas Tank adding a connector fitting

6 posts in this topic

I bought a new 6 gal tank for my tiller boat. Do I have to put anything on the threads before I screw it into the tank? The tank is plastic and the fitting is brass.

There is two types of teflon tape.The white color is for air/water ap

lication and the yellow is for gas/other aplications.Use plumbers goop instead of teflon tape.Hope this helps,c63 grin.gif

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
