A 2¼" nylon spinner is included, but the larger engines require
extensive trimming of the spinner. If the stock spinner must be
trimmed, it is strongly suggested to use an aluminum spinner and
lock nut such as TRUQ1065 and TRUQ3063.
If a replacement fuel tank is needed, order the Sullivan 14oz
tank (SULQ1742), or the DuBro 14oz tank (DUBQ0214).
Some minor trimming and modifications may be required.
