Or if I fit a quick fill (dry break) system to the stock tank .Doing away with the stock cap and threads. Does the tank need to be vented somehow or does the dry break do this ?

When I had my stock tank, I had a quick fill valve from HDG Products. I worked flawlessly, and would recommend it for you. No more than 10 seconds to fill up!. I actually still run it, and have the option of running that valve or with an dry break adapter for a dry break tank. I don't think making the tank into a dry break is a good idea, but then again, if anybody can do it, you can. Yes, if you put a dry break, it has to be vented.

Yes, the tank will still need a vent. I think you could do it, would have to use the setup Clarke uses to seal the receiver to the tank:

The backing ring goes into the tank, then the cork gasket goes on the outside between the tank and receiver, tighten the bolts down to hold the receiver in place. I have a spare gasket laying around so I took it out to my stock tank, looks like it would work to me. Just need to use the gasket as a template to cut out the middle and drill the screw holes. Doesn't look to hard, as long as the mounting area on the tank is perfectly flat, which it looks like it is. I may just try it myself one of these days.

Although I bet the sytem Ceballos posted would probably work just as well, especially if you already have the 5 gallon jugs.

Hey Doug, I was actually surprised how well that valve works! Great product for the money...

Lee, I have a brand new vent I'll send you if you want it.

I contacted Clarke awhile back and they said I needed 41/2" flat surface. The stock tank aint far off that .
Can you buy the tank vent as a kit ?
I am guessing this is not something, I want to build myself.
