Only a couple things left to do.

I reworked the tank this morning. It's a Brodak and it was a little too long so I shortened it so it would fit. I took the pickup tube from the top and soldered it to the bottom. I also soldered the pickup tube to the corner of the tank. Flushed/brushed with alcohol and pressure checked it.

Good going. I need to get less reluctant to do tin tank work. Is that a Fox .15?

It is the Fox. Even though it is light weight it's still heavy. Another choice would have been a Cox .09. That would require a major nose rework.

I do have a Fox .10, it's lighter, but not overly common and It has an integrated glow plug/head. The bolt pattern is the same as the .15, but no spare head makes it almost unuseable.

Could you get the .10 head tapped for Nelson plug?

Yeah, thought about that. If I had a burnt out one that would be ideal.

I also have no idea what it performs like. I think Fox rebadged the .10 hustler.
