The aft wing tank and support.



This is the fuel strainer we made just behind frame 6.



But we're using the same system used in the original Falco. In fact we need a drain valve that can be used to empty the aft fuel tank to reach the Aerobatic weight and balance. The cover is also an original part made by Laverda.



And this is the interesting part, since the cover can be opened easily for draining. The same cover has another purpose, since it's used to take air out of the cockpit.

We have still to make the hole in the plywood for this purpose.



A first picture of the vent system. We're using Nyloseal tubing and fittings. This "T" is on frame 6, and the tubing is coming from the front fuel tank.
