All the parts needed in one kit to add to the builder supplied Fiji or similar bottle. There will be three kit sizes 16oz, 32oz and 50oz with appropriate length tubing for each. Price and availability to be announced soon but expected to come in just a bit more than the cap and fittings combo already on the website.

This is what is included: Aluminum cap, one and/or two single and double barb fittings, a section of genuine "BLACK" 60 durometer Viton tubing, two zip ties, a section of brass tubing, brass barb and the newly designed PSP custom heavy clunk pick up.

That's cool, but how about a kit including felt or ceramic filter clunks?

BTW, love the PSP Fiji bottle caps!

Glad you like the caps...!!!


Not to start a clunk war or anything but we are not a fan of in tank filters because of the maintenance issues. Too many guys have had problems with felt clunks coming apart and such so we stick to a finial screen filter like the Sulivan crap trap just before the carb nipple. Using Viton tubing inside the tank along with a good non filtering clunk and the PSP cap and fittings make for a tank that once built should not need to be opened up again for maintenance. Ceramic clunks are okay I guess but again, they are filters too so subject to needing cleaned from time to time.

Many, many hobbyist use & prefer ceramic -or- felt clunks and use such with no problem for many years. That's simply a matter of personal preference.

But an in-line filter just adds another point for potential air leaks. Yearly maintenance on any fuel system is advised no matter what style you use!

Just be sure to rinse it out VERY good first.
Don't need no residual bubbly in your mix.

I tend to like the felt like and ceramic filters as well. I have used them as well for years with no problems.
These filters screen out the absolute smallest particals and they also screen out bubbles that may form from vibration.
