Well there I was.
Getting ready to remove my Supercharger Pully and had to take off this oil tank.

Wasn't paying CLOSE enough attention when I disconected the lower fitting to seperate it from the sled and trashed the O-Ring.

Time to order in a couple and get a SPARE ...

Those o-rings have a tendency to get brittle after a couple of years... Common occurrence.

Ya, I am NOT faulting the manufacturer on this at all.
Fired off a note to him this afternoon asking him to sell me a couple new ones.

Still LOVE THE TANK.
Its built SO WELL!!!

No christopher you are not the only one out there with my oil tank there's 30 plus tanks out there on various nytro's around the US and Canada. Have not heard of any problems with any of my tanks this far. Would love to hear reviews and comments to further perfect the tanks if needed. THANKS Sledhead162
sledhead162 are you having any foaming issues at all? I put my viper and mcx components in one of my axys chassis. completed the build and now Im cleaning up fit and finish. Built my own air to water intercooler and exchangers as well as all mounting fabrication. I have never needed to build an oil tank so I have not looked too much into baffle design and distribution points. I know I could cut apart factory and duplicate if need be. Any trial and error info would be greatly appreciated!

If space is limited I have heard of the apex tank being used. I would love to hear more about your build. As I just finished up my yamalaris. A nytro in a dragon chassis

Nice! Ya I looked at that and figured it would work. I have already had it on the snow. Just cleaning things up now for cleaner fit and finish. Never liked the tank to begin with. I had a pile into the sled as a viper and was unable to get turbo mfg on board of fixing det issues from high charge air temps. figured if I needed to fix the problem I would rather have it in one of my Axys chassis. Hows the weight on Drago? Can only imagine its a fire breathing Dragon!

I have not weighed the yamalaris but it feels light to ride and I can actually lift the front and the back end off the ground, something I can not say about my nytro. It is a stocker no turbo on this one more of a experiment to see how the motor would be in a better balanced chassis. I would love to find a axys chassis for my next build but I will most likely settle for the pro chassis and 174 track and nytro turbo motor. The wiring in the picture looks like hell. It is a lot of work to make a one of sled good job and let us know how it works out. Maybe even some more pics
