- Put enough epoxy around the vent line to
seal it to the screen and to the side of the funnel .
Let the epoxy set up and by the
next day you have a funnel that should separate out water and
debris that may have been in your re-fueling container.
You now have a better way to
add fuel to your ship that should keep unwanted material out of
the helicopter fuel system. The funnel with it's rubber washer
can now be screwed onto the fuel tank securely and will help prevent
fuel spills over your nice paint job and from running down the
tank and into your hot engine compartment. If you overfill, the
fuel backs up into the clear funnel and you can watch it as the
level slowly goes down as the tanks fuel levels equalize.
The piece of vent tubing allows
the fuel vapor to escape so that the fuel in your funnel will
not bubble back and splash all over the side of your helicopter
by releasing the pressure from building in the helo fuel tank
as fuel is added.
Each time that you fuel your
helicopter you can monitor the cleanliness of your fuel containers
by looking at the strainer screen for any water or debris. You
do not want them in your fuel system.
