    You know, fightin' in a basement offers a lot of difficulties. Number one being, you're fightin' in a basement!

    Couple of other minor mods. Spin on oil filters, remote brake res. (can easily check when getting in truck) and the all important dash fan!

    Got all the parts except the the 90 degree elbow, a hose nipple and two clamps from Pegasus Auto Racing Supplies - Home Page

    The parts are:

    #3557--mounting bracket
    #3577--clamp
    #3558--tank medium
    #3575--BFS hose, sold by the foot, you need at least four feet
    #3564--reservoir cap#3559--medium and larger reservoir filter

    I know alot of people like to mount this on the firewall, but I chose the space next to the driver's seat as you almost have to check it just getting in the truck.

    A few pics of the 109 at Operation Lion Claws X over Memorial Weekend. Had a great time and Col. McKnight loved the setup.

    Great job !
    May I suggest that you either move the house batteries outside or seal them in a box vented to the outside.
    I had a customer with a battery on a charger in a closet, he opened the door one day and lit a match to see in the closet and it blew up. That hydrogen gas is really flammable. He had no eyebrows left!

    That's one lucky crispy-critter... I could have been much worse.

    Please excuse my ignorance for asking this question. Do the optima batteries need to be vented?
