Main Fuel Tank, Port, Yak 52
Two styles of Fuel Tank were used.
Earlier versions will dispense fuel onto the tarmac through the underwing vent lines on a summer day.
Later versions have additional fuel expansion pipework and will not dump fuel. To tell the difference, open the square access door behind the cowling on the Starboard side of your 52. If you see two yellow fuel lines running vertically there, you have the later, improved venting type.
If you see only one line, you have the earlier tanks.
Pictured is example is an earlier tank. It has never been repaired and still had fuel in it when removed. We have both early and late available.
Tell tale blue dye signs would have indicated leaks. All tanks are pressure tested by an external testing service before shipment.
Custom shipping will be required for other than local pickup due to the size and fragility of this item.
