    RANS told me that the fuel tank pick up tube, part number KPFS0050, has a hex wrench fitting inside the tube (where the straight fitting fits) so that you can hold the tube steady with an Allen wrench while tightening or loosing the AN924-8D nut. I did not see a hex wench fitting inside my pick up tube but it was manufactured around 2010. If someone has an S-19 pick up tube that has not been installed yet, can you see if the hex wrench fitting is in the tube? That would be a nice feature to know about.

    Thanks,
    Mike Duggan

    It's in the through fitting. The one that has the o-ring on it.

    My S19 (200 fittings had this.

    If your just putting the fitting through the tank (before the pipe thread fitting has been installed) you may be able to go through the fitting and hold it that way with an allen wrench.

    But it's been 7 years since I did this so.............

    I am at this point in the wing build. I'll look at all the fittings this evening. I really planned all along, to use pro-seal on all the fittings that penetrate the tank.

    I used pro-seal on all the fittings with my rebuild--great results. Should be part of the RANS instructions.

    I've never used any sealer on the fittings. Just the o-rings and thread sealant. No leaks so far!

    Probably wouldn't hurt I guess.
