    I found some brand new ones on fleabay for $45. I bought every one he had. Deals can be had if you aren't in a rush

    All I have left is two for my personal use. Most of the generators I sold buyers wanted one. I sold them with the units for $100 since I was making my $ on the unit

    For casual use, it will probably work just fine. The down rod is immersed in the fuel, so the seal on the drum isn't that big of a deal... whether the seep hole in the adapter or a slight air leak at the bung adapter... so long as the down pipe is in fuel, its gonna pull.

    Interesting is when I went take it apart everything was already loose, handle screws, fuel fitting. Fair amount of rust on both threads of the bung head, which means it had been laying around with no hose connector or down tube. pipe tap will clean the up threads just fine. The two rubber parts were only glazed on their outer edges with no cracks, so I washed the years of dried diesel crudge off and drench them in silicone in a plastic bag to soak until get around to making the down tube. So I'm happy.

    So I found out how long the two pieces are, but I still don't know the length from bung hole plug bottom to end of pick-up tube. Now I know I can make my own measurements, but curious how far military stayed off the bottom, as a reference for making mine.

    Wanted to add this to the thread... seems dumb to people with experience but when I was first looking at surplus generator sets, I had no idea.
