    Can anybody provide me with images, schematics or any another resource for the plumbing set up on the 108 gallon drop tank? all of the images that I have are inconclusive without a clear view.

    Thanks a lot Micdrow you are a great help, Its a shame that the first image isn't a little higher rez, as its exactly what I am looking for, the second is also very helpful as it enables me to make a few corrections that I hadn't noticed before.
    cheers.
    * just used the image provided here, and looked up Mustang Sweet and Lovely and found the exact image that I needed. thanks again for the tip.
