Plugging the Rupture Tank

Okay, I'm currently in the process of removing the EPA stuff, including the reed valves, air hoses, and valve under the gas tank/seat. I need to plug the hole that comes from the rupture tank to the valve, which looks like about a 1-1/2 hole. Any recommendations?

I had a rubber cap laying around from another job. It was from the "HELP!" section at the auto supply store. Could be a vacuum cap or plug. In any event, it fit right into the remaining hose under the seat.

I used the 1/2" I.D. copper waterline caps on my reed valve housings and inverted one and stuck it up the end of the hose and just left the hose attached to the tank.

The one in the middle.Left it attached at the tank end so I would need to get a different fitting since I had extra caps laying around.

You mean the valve under the seat by the tank ?

I talked to my next door neighboor who just happened to have a rubber cap that was about the right size. Put that in, and applied liberal amounts of RTV silicon sealant.
