The pressure line from exhaust goes to the pressure tube in the main tank,,the output or carby feed tube of the main tank((the tube that goes to the bottom of the tank)) goes to the pressure tube of the hopper tank,and the hopper feed tube((the one that goes to bottom of tank))goes to the carby or 3rd channel remote mixture if applicable,,cheers

I like those little triangle tanks and the one ounce round ones .. We called them "pony"
tanks.... I have no idea why, but most of the guys in our club that ran mono's used them.

I know they cured a lot of fuel feed issues.

Some guys used a dual tank arrangement for riggers with the entire second tank set up as the pony tank.

Bill,
While we are in Brandon, remind me to show my tank setup in my Top Gun Sport-40 using one of those little Otto tanks

I got my Irwin hopper tank from John Otto, and I love it. So will you Bill.

I use mine in my mono and it works great just wedged in my flotation. Just keep the feed to the needle on the low side
