It makes no sense whatsoever to be messing about on open water trying to transfer fuel from a jerry to the main tank.
I've received the base adapter kits (caps with 1/4 NPT threaded holes) and have installed the fittings. Here are some pictures;

So where did you get the scepter MFC lids with NPT threaded holes from?

Looks like a good way to have a back up fuel system as as well as the fuel

Hi Mark,

I got my adapter base kits from a Canadian Supplier ( The Great Canadian Expedition Company http://www.gcec.info/products.asp?cat=36&pg=2 ), but I'm sure that 2012Marine (http://www.2012marinerestoration.com/) who has posted here can supply with them in the UK with a special RIB.netter discount.

The part # for the Adapter Base Kit is 05381. I paid $ 22.42 CAN for each from my supplier I (would guess it might work out to a bit more in Britain since it is a Canadian manufacturer).

As for the other fittings, I picked them up at a local boat shop & and a department store (Canadian Tire) that handles automotive & marine supplies. You could also probably get all of these brass fittings at a local machine supply shop that deals with hydraulic & pneumatic machine parts. Here is more detail on each of the items;

A) The barbed fuel hose fitting on the underside of the cap shown in the 3rd picture is this;

or;

http://seasense.com/index.php?page=s...mart&Itemid=26

or;

http://www.tempoproducts.com/product...rts&item_id=20

These companies offer barbs for fuel hose diameters from 1/4", 5/16", 3/8". I'm using a 5/16" inch marine fuel hose for the pickup line going into the MFC.


B) The elbow coming from the top of the cap is;

or;

http://www.attwoodmarine.com/product...e=&headername=

or;

http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=R024017



C) Screwed into that elbow is a Chrysler/Force fuel coupler for the simple reason that I prefer that style to to the double prong or bayonet style fuel couplers. I believe that both Tohatsu/Nissan and Suzuki use a very similar style of coupler. Of course you can fit whatever style you prefer.

D) At the fuel line is the female counterpart of the preferred style of fuel coupler - in this case, Chrysler/Force.

or:

E) In the other hole of the cap is a simple end plug since I can vent the tank by slightly loosening the cap. I'll probably replace this plug with some type of ball valve with a breather valve.


Here is a link to all sorts of brass fittings:

update #2

I had earlier mentioned that I wanted to use a closeable vent/breather rather than the straight brass plug that was in the previous pictures. I found this item with a copper breather screen which is perfect. The stem only needs to be lightly finger tightened to get an airtight seal (as shown in the first picture), and unscrewed a few turns to allow the MFC to vent when fuel is being drawn from it (2nd picture).

All the best.

Greg

PS John K, I will sort out the trade entry soonest!!!
Guys

The Scepter cans have an internal thread in the neck with tighter threads. The transfer pumps I distribute have a single brass moulded fitting with a 5psi blow off walve ands shreader valve making all the seals vvv good. The nozzle is basically the same as what you get at the petrol station.
