Hope that helps. I have photos of it installed if you'd like to see it. Just PM me with your email address.

Hey DD, have you ever seen this happen? My 4 gal IMS doesn't hang any lower than the stocker, it's just wider. I've never noticed a lot of gas left on that side in the stock tank. I haven't had a chance to test it yet since my rear shock blew up before the tank arrived and I've been waiting nearly 2 months for the replacement. It should be here next weekend and I'm gonna run the new jug dry and post the results.

I want the Zip-Ty tank, but they're saying 2-3 weeks and I have a race coming up. Maybe I can make an IMS tank into a Zip-Ty tank by adding the right side fitting myself.
I've PM'd you an e-mail address if you get a chance to send some pictures.
Thanks again, Jim

Yes, ZipTy Racing adds 90degree fittings to both sides of the tank and uses a single petcock on the left side. You can see one of the fittings in the photos I sent you. I'm sure you could modify an IMS tank since ZipTy mods theirs after they recieve them from IMS. Drill, tap, insert 90degree fitting and route a hose between the two. I'm using a quick-disconnect coupler between the two 90's so I can take the tank off without spilling fuel everywhere.
