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.

I used the copper caps too.

What line going to what 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.

Yes there is 3 hoses, I pulled off the 2 small ones with the valve and plugged the 3rd(the one in the middle)

They were placed on the ground, or maybe in a small drawer that's sort of exposed to the weather. You know, perfect place for emissions parts.

Hooray Beer? They were based in Jamaica, I think. I know they were on the ground, but I don't think they'd fit in a drawer.
