I'm hoping on getting the orginal fuel tank back in the Brat this week and just had a question about some modifications made to it by the last owner, it seems when he got it there was junk in the tank and it was clogging up fuel filters and the lines, so he installed another tank in the bed to run off of, at some point before he did this on the drivers underside of the tank he added a 90 deg. brass fitting with some goo holding it on. I'm guessing he had a fuel line hooked up to it, not sure what that would've solved but he did it anyway.

I'm just curious if this was the orginal location for a drain plug and if so would there be like a threaded nut on the inside of the tank for the plug to go into, I really don't like the idea of this fitting smacking something while driving.

Hes got propoxy on there.. that stuff is tough as nails!!! and by the looks of it.. since he used propoxy, thats not supposed to be there... but i dunno.. maybe he just screwed it up and had to put that in there!

I'm just wondering if a plug goes there, there is only one other first gen in town and I'm afraid to go snooping around under someone elses car. I just want to compare before I come yanking this thing out.
