The fuel line fittings which are on my seat tank are very small 1/4” NPT. Aircraft Spruce and Specialty does not carry a finger strainer smaller than 3/8”. What has been done to fit finger strainers in the seat tanks? It is prudent to install strainers in the actual fuel tank, followed by a gascolator then a final filter. This tank has dual outlets due to the seat mounting design. The fitting is brass and I do not know if there is enough meat to retap the threads to a size larger. Any advice? These seats, 11 gallon I believe, are common. What is your advice?
