No not that bung.

I need a 3/8 NPT weld-on fuel tank bung mild steel. Anyone know who sells them? I checked Fabkevins site, he doesn't list them.

Thanks.
I get mine from Ace Hardware.

Thanks guys, we all must have our favorite industrial hardware "bolt house", the one here in town has damn near everything except NPT bungs. I hate to make them becuase I always either tap them too deep or not enough, I hate pipe thread. Thanks for thinking Paughco Tony, you are right, half my bike is from them and they do ship REAL fast, will call em' A.M..

Paughco has them and they're nicer than the ones from McMaster. The McMaster ones are huge. The Paughco's are just the right size but don't get them too hot when you're welding it in or the thread gets all screwy... unless you feel like chasing it with a tap. They can get it to you fast and it's only $2.95 or something. If only I had a lathe and a nice tap and die set!!

AWESOME bike BTW!! Keep us posted on the progress!!

Thanks Scooter, called them already this morning, it's a done deal.
We should do a Spring Mountain Bar run when my Jose Cuervo fueled sled is done, I'm in Henderson.
