Replacing fuel tank on CHB34

I am just finishing replacing my starboard tank and thought I would record the details. I attach 2 files - one dealing with cutting up the old tank in order to remove it and the other on fabricating and installing a new tank.
I hope some fellow owners find this of some use.
Best regards,
Nick Fletcher

Nick,

Thanks for going through all the effort to document your tank replacement. It will make a great resource for anyone needing to make the tank change in the future.

Really appreciate you taking the time to create such a detailed resource for CHB 34 owners. I have filed both documents away for future reference. Hope however that I never have to use them!
Thanks
Doug

Mike ,

P.M. Nick. THat will allow you to send a sort of Email which will go to his Email address. Through here if he does not look at this particular post he will not be aware of it.

Click on his moniker and a box will open up to allow you to send him a PM

If you wish more communication then send your email address also or ask him to come back to this post. Any longwinded discussion are better through Email B UT and is a big but no one else will learn anything.
