Sounds like from the description they are not an approved fuel transport container?? “non-fuel” liquids
Mine was sold to me by a VP dealer to transport the pump race fuel. Never had a problem except you can't store fuel long-term.

I wonder why that is? Can’t store fuel in them long term? That would be the definite game changer for me as I have E99 in the steel cans for 2-3 years now. Filled to the brim, no air, and stabilized with Lucas E85 stabilizer, still like fresh out of the drum. I use that for when pump flex drops out of the 80’s to bring it back up into the 80% range. I think steel cans is the only recommended long term storage material especially for ethanol. They do take up more space then the nice square red ones unfortunately but are at least stackable. I have probably 20 of them filled with E83 or 99 to get me through next spring until summer E arrives back in the pumps in these parts.

I don't think that they're completely airtight.

You may be right there. I can say that having over 100 gallons on hand in cans there is absolutely zero fuel smell in my shop so the cans must be air and vapor tight.

I used to use those fill spouts for the cans, but had two break the little vent tube holder at the nozzle making them almost useless after that. Got tired of replacing $20 nozzles so I went to the jugs. I really like them. Mine would drip a bit at the vent until I learned I only needed to crack it open like 1/2 a turn and it did the job. I don't store fuel in mine, I keep the Racing E85 in the steel cans until I'm ready to use it, then I transfer to the jugs, and dump the entire thing in at the track.

Just ordered the lock ring tool, might as well as much as I've fooled with this thanks for the info.

Any need in replacing seals while the pump housing is a part? I see Fore offers a set for $12. I may can find a viton o ring set online though.

O, one more thing on the pump assembly. The outlet bung, take notice it’s drilled out like I did to the fuel supply line but to .425” ID verse .400 on the fuel line. That left a .037” wall thickness tube, BIG physical difference easily seeable. The reason to be able to drill it out larger than the fuel line is the catch ring is machined onto the OD of the aluminum fitting verses rolled onto like the fuel lines are, fuel line could only be opened up to what the wall thickness of the fuel line was. This helps fuel delivery as well. Good time to remove a restriction if you have access to a lathe and drill bit set. Can be seen here just a bit verse original. 7FCD7D9D-B60A-441C-A211-A987225CE6BF.png 9BCEB447-5EF9-494E-97A6-439712FDAB96.png

I didn’t but it sure wouldn’t hurt to as any leaks yes just spill back into the tank but will take away from delivery potential if they are leaking. Good idea for 12$

Got all tools and parts on order. I had to order a "Hellcat Hardware Pack" from Fore. They don't just sell the viton o-rings so I get some bolts/screws I wont' need. $12 turned in to $22 with the flat rate $10 shipping. That's a pet peeve to me. These small parts are probably $2 to ship. If they need the extra $8 so bad, just make the kit $20.

@16GoManGoHC2 thanks for the 411 on the thin section wrenches, got a set of those coming to make the job a bit easier.

I agree, but at the same time it's surprising how expensive it is to ship stuff at the Post Office anymore!

:oops:

I priority mail 2 day ship my RTD devices for 8 to 11 dollars depending on where in the US they are going. That includes insurance as well. But yes shipping on especially big items have went up.

Right, but I suppose thinking along the lines of @Speedy! , you could probably ship a couple of O-rings for the cost of a 1st-class stamp...
