Wow! That's something I haven't seen before. I wonder how you go about mounting a tank backplate to it? Drill your own holes? Huh... anyone else see one of these?

The picture's not clear, but I would imagine the front spigot is threaded to screw in place of the regular Tee Dee backplate. Then, I imagine you need to supply your own Babe Bee type tank backplate which is secured through the venturi hole by a single screw. Then it would mount like a regular tank-mounted Cox. If that's how it works I don't like it, but I see no other way it could. The single mounting screw would be weak & unreliable.

Oh, and to use it as a tank you'd need to install some sort of fuel nipple.
