"Thanks for all the responses to my question. I am happy to hear that I will not need to modify my oil tank since I am getting very close to finally getting the engine cranked up for the first time. The last thing I need is any more delays at this po…"
"Jan sent out an Email notice that the tube broke off in the tank. I don't have any other information other than that notice. It would be useful to know how many hours that engine has accumulated since it seems likely to be some sort of fatigue failu…"
"I have attached a photo of my Viking 110 oil tank, showing the aluminum oil pickup tube that reportedly failed recently. I have looked throughout the Viking website for drawings showing the internal structure of the tank so that I can remove it for…"
