    Drain holes on sides

    I was wondering on the drain holes on the side. Aka scupper. It has tabs on the on side like something attaches to it. I can't see what would attach to it just dosen't make sense. Looking inside there's tabs inside. The chrome scupper one would think that it would be a straight exit to discard bilage water. Just one of those things that make me go hummm

    Leaf spring question

    I have duel axels on my trailer and where the two springs meet there is a bracket that joins the two to the trailer . My question is the two arms from spring one set faces up and one set faces down .it just doesn't look correct. I would take a pic but it tells me it's to big for some reason

    Ideas remove fuel from tank

    2007 235ssi 5.0 mpi 1# I tryed hose in filler cant get past elbo on top of tank . 2# removed fuel supply line to pump ran Extended hose out drain plug on Tried to pressurize tank to get it to flow . I think it needs a pump to lift fuel up out of tank. Looking for more ideas I ended up removing supply line from fuel pump and running a hose with a 12v holly out drain plug works fine just have to be extra careful gas can and will hurt or kill you if you dont use safty first . Thanks to all for your input . Merry Christmas to everyone
