attached photo's

I have downsized the photo's, although I have now lost some of the frame. The petrol tank is next to the battery, is this common practice ?.

Sadly on small ribs it used to be very common. You have to ask yourself if you saw a secondhand car for sale with the battery lines rapped around the fuel line would you buy it ? well battery cables and fuel lines are often rigged together in addition to battery and fuel tank being located in the same console space with nothing to separate them. Is there room to separate them with a bulkhead or put the fuel tanks on the rear deck or in another seat ?

I would definitely find a way to seperate the two. I can't remember how many times when I hook up power to the battery I get small sparks. It might look tidy with the battery and gas out of sight but the potential for fire is way too risky I say.

petrol tank v battery

Looks like I will try to seperate them, will need to cut out the front of the console, to allow access to the battery.

Will post with updates on the various stages, away out to free the jockey wheel. Start off with the small projects first.

Cheers Rob

Elbow grease only I'm afraid, the coffers are bare
