Tanks, Fittings and Connections

Fuel tank
"Econo" Cap and BungSize and location are part of deciding what you need. Is this a sedan application where you want to keep the big tank in the rear or a front engine dragster or an altered. Each has different applications. Three Hole Tank BungConstructing a tank that will perform to your needs you must consider a lot of different design considerations. How many returns do you need? What size feed line do I need ? Where do I get the hardware to build the tank? We can answer all your tank questions and provide you with the hardware to build your tank with. Because of the range of options it is not feasible to discuss them here but we are very happy to assist you with the correct design of your fuel tank. Most fuel tanks for constant flow fuel injection need several ports to return the fuel back to the tank. There is usually a minimum of two ports required. As a racer you have several options. One you can weld on two separate bungs but for a tidy appearance you must be sure to keep them in line. Installing the minimum quantity will allow you to provide for your needs, today. Many times later there is a desire to add an extra port or two for more returns as your fuel system gets a little more complicated. If you install the minimum number required then you have no expansion room without removing the tank and adding more ports. If you add at least one more port than is necessary today and just plug it up until it is needed. We have made several different size billet weld bung blocks. We make both three and four hole and both dash 6 and dash 8 sizes plus blank threaded ones that allow you to drill and tap the sizes you want. For appearance sake we make both the profiled and the straight side billet weld bung blocks to suit any customers’ needs. Prices shown are racer decal discount prices. Wholesale volume purchases get a 15% discount if you purchase any three of the billet weld bung blocks on one order. A lot of race car fuel tanks use the 1 ¼” supply hose. This size is used because it has flows that are adequate for everything up to Top Fuel and at 1 ¼” common radiator hose which is methanol compatible is inexpensive and readily available.  Below is a weld nipple for your fuel tank that has an anti cavitation plate made into the top of the nipple. When this nipple is used in the tank it provides a certain  amount of protection to prevent cavitation from when the pump draws the fuel from the tank it can also create a low pressure area in the fuel that can vortex into a path for the pump to draw air.

Prices are in AUD which is Austrailan dollars. How this currentcy exchanges with other nations vairies on a daily basis but usually on by a cent or so. Today the exchange rate with the US dollar is .79 which means if something costs 100.00 AUD then you can purchase it with 79.00 US dollars.

The threads in the billet bung blocks are SAE 0-ring design typical of most race applications. Currently as an off the shelf item we do not offer other thread options. In special applications we can custom make almost any thread that you may need. Some of these are NPT (National Pipe Taper) or BSP (British Standard Pipe).

Our SAE o-ring billet bung blocks are constructed from weld friendly aluminum.

To insure our SAE o-ring billet bung blocks have the correct dimensions for the SAE o-ring fitting all surfaces for the fitting are cut with a custom made form tool insuring all the dimensions are accurate and correct. 

Features -
Because all the ports are located on one block spacing and alignment problems are not a problem. Having all the ports on a single block also makes the installation much more robust as well.

It is recommended to install at least one more port than you think you will need. You can install a plug to block off the unused port initially but there is a good chance once you  start racing you will find that you need an extra port in the future. If you don’t then it was just insurance. If you do aren’t you glad you put one in when you built the tank.  You will only regret it if you don’t put an extra port in.

Size is another consideration. Unless you are locked into a port size by hardware design then it is recommended to use the larger port. Stepping down from a larger port to a smaller fitting is usually no problem but if you have to go the other way using a large hose and fitting and stepping down to a smaller port can cause restriction problems that could have been avoided with a larger port and fitting.

Don’t forget the drain.  Here is a place you probably do only need one port. Pick the lowest spot or the corner that would be the lowest if the vehicle  was being maintained or stored. Not much use draining the tank if you don’t get it all out.

I started building race cars in 1967.

Getting the right hardware to construct your race car from can often be a challenge. In the beginning we just wanted to build cars and not have to make all the fiddly bits. As it turned out

As fabricators we searched for high quality hardware to create our products from and were frequently disappointed. Our only solution was to make our own hardware. The problem was that the volume we needed did not support the quantities required to make our own hardware at prices that fit the application. In other words if we needed 20 of an item per year to get the price right we would have to make a 20 year supply. This is not cost effective.

WE decided to change our focus and make the products that we want to use and offer these products to others.

A fabricator can do very nice work but the finished product will have a nicer finish if the fittings used to construct the product have a good finish.

We have manufactured tanks for customers of a long time and there are some applications that do not need the detail that race car hardware needs. For this applications we have created some items that do work well but some might say are not race car hardware but never the less work very well.

The prices shown here on this page are “Fabricators” price. What this means is if your order is less than $100.00 this is your price.

100.00 order = Fabricators price
200.00 order = 10% discount from Fabricators price

300.00 order = 20% discount from Fabricators price
500.00 order =  30% discount from Fabricators price
LOWE Race Car Hardware
1000.00 order = 40% discount from Fabricators price

What this means is – stock up and $ave.

The 31 Chapter 200 page Fuel Injection book is here for  more info on what has been called "the best fuel injection book on this planet". Now only $99.95AUD If you only learn one thing it is worth it
The FI book has been this price for ten years now, my publishing costs continue to rise and soon I will have to raise the price.
Currently all orders are processed at the old price of $99.95 - don't miss out - order now.

I must point out that my printing house (and all the rest of them as well) have raised their prices so when this last printed batch of books are gone... the price goes up. Order now and save.
