Default RBF fuel caps

I contacted Dave Owens and ordered two, single hole caps/fittings. He answered my emails quickly, and was very helpful. The items took two weeks to arrive, he sent them out the day I ordered them. The email I contacted him at is: david.owens@me.com

This post is intended to be helpful to those who have attempted to contact Dave about the caps in the past, apparently the e-mail addy on his website is incorrect...

If only Dave would have sent me the fuel fittings he said he would back in May....

Yep - I reached out as well and was ready to buy and never heard a thing.

Guess I am spoiled with Mary Anne

Didn't you successfully snag a couple of sets of the MA elbow fittings? I think those are better anyway.

Yeah, I got two in the mail a couple weeks ago. Brian at MA says they're on the list to be manufactured, but they're low priority.

We actually exchanged several e-mails about this and then all comms stopped. I'm not going to bother reaching out again.

A similar thing happened to me. I ordered a set of the single hole and a set of the double hole back in January. I didn't get any fittings and when I asked about them he said they would get some sent right way. Never got them and never heard from them again.

I went ahead and bought some fittings and used them. I've now got a pair of the MA right angle fittings so I'll be installing them soon.

Where did you find these Ken? I gave up after several evenings of searching on the web.

Nobody has 'em in stock. Brian James of MA sent me an E-mail in response to my enquiry several weeks ago asking who might have some. He said they hadn't sold any in quite some time, but they were on the manufacturing list, but were low priority.

I can certainly ping him again and try to get an update. I'd like to get 2 more for myself so I can finally replace my dinged up tanks.

I got the two I have from New England Heli. It was a link Kevin posted in a prior thread. If their inventory was accurate, it was their last two.

Ok, that explains why I couldn't get MY last two.. Bastard..

I shot an e-mail off to Brian at MA earlier today to see how production is coming. Assuming I get an answer, I'll post it here.

Just got a call from Rick at Heliproz. They've got some of the right angle fittings in stock. I've got my 2nd pair on the way...
