    Joined today. Found some answers to questions I have on fueling a Curtiss P-40.
    (Thanks for sharing the information.)

    Please confirm--

    the only fuel filler for the P-40 is on the left, behind the cockpit.

    (I have a 1/72 scale model of the P-40 and a fuel truck with a GI and fuel hose.
    I would like to put the GI on the wing in the correct spot for refueling.)

    Hi Ray

    Welcome to the forum. In the technical section you will find all the p-40 maintenance manuals, but here is a page from the Maintenance and Erection Manual, which locates the servicing locations for fuel,, oil etc

    Cheers
