Like this?

The square tank is 1” x 1” x .25”. The fuel ports are .1” dia with a .0625” hole. Volume of the tank is .825”x .825”x .150”

Nylon is already loaded in the printer with a .25mm nozzle.

Yep. I can bridge the top gap without any support. I can manually add support to the bottom port.

There may be a hint here..

Cox Pinto Funny Car - Almost to easy - Page 2 _5710
Cox Pinto Funny Car - Almost to easy - Page 2 _57-b10

The manual will tell you for sure.. but it looks to me as though the parts called "bullets" are what close the throttle and deploy the drag-chute. I would guess that a single bullet is threaded-onto the guide-line (and maybe secured by a knot?)somewhere around 3/4 of the way down the track.  Huh...  Huh... ???

You may have also seen the below photos.. but I'll post em' because of their relevance..

Hey Chancey, I don't know the history behind the "Bill Schifsky" top-fuel car. The photos are ones that I sourced from the internet some time ago.. when searching "Google-Images" for Cox models. You'd be surprised at what comes-up.

Here's a full-scale Bill Schifsky "yellow-bodied" variant-photo..

Here's the balance of what I have on the Cox Pinto Funny-Car..

Tanks are done. Support material on bottom port was a bit difficult to remove but got it without breaking it off.

Pic with the top sealed up and with them complete.

Thanks for those pictures roddie, helps a lot. I have never seen what those little "bullets" look like.

I did receive that manual bought on ebay for $13. + and near worthless. A reprint so light it's barely readable, cut at an angle and stapled together randomly. Gotta leave one of my very rare negative feedbacks.

And Jason. They look great. PM sent.
