    Hi All
    The attached photo of my NC42 shows two spare tank fittings on the top of the std fuel tank. I need to identify the thread type and size to attach a new inlet and outlet. My problem being that I’m in Australia and my NC42 is in Greece and I like to take these small fittings with me. It saves on time when I get there.

    Does anyone know this info, I’m guessing it a standard across the NC range. Also does anyone know if the tanks are baffled, and how?

    Many thanks MC

    Hi Michael
    I will look at my N42 tanks next week and see if I can help.
    What will the new inlet and outlets supply?

    Hi David

    The primary reason is to install a small generator/invertor, the secondary is to connect in a fuel polishing system. I’m having some diesel issues and the longterm economical solution is a polishing system I’ve pulled together. Thanks for you help, this is my first post and it’s nice to talk to someone with a 42.
    Cheers MC
