That will be for you to find out. We have no way of knowing. As long as it is above the bottom of the TC you should be fine.

I'd suggest holding off on putting the tank there if you are thinking of going with a Savvy skid, at least until you have the skid on. I had to move mine further back than normal when I went with an Nth skid. I'm going to move mine out of that location since it's got really beaten up, and I don't think I can risk it being in that location any longer.

Put it next to your hand throttle and buy a Co2 tank.

Will do! Any further developments on the TC shifter? Is the Novak cable shifter for the 231 ready? Or should we be thinking about modifying an AA/Tera adapter? Or has your creativity derived another savvy solution?

Having used the Novak solution on a couple of 241's, I'd be hard pressed to outdo them and my energies are better spent not reinventing the wheel.

But is Novak ever going to release a 231 Cable version?

Gerald should be placing an order this afternoon for the first 20 or so off their production line to make it easier for our customers to single source this project.

that's close to the weight of my current oil pan skid i made out of 1/4in steel.

That sounds good. Hope the stash of cash I have been holding on to for all this turns out to be enough. Maybe I can find somewhere that pays for donation of blood or other bodily fluids if it turns out to be a little short.

So that's a Yes...Good to hear since I'm not super happy with the Manual Novak shifter conversion I did (as you "heard" a few weeks ago)

How did you get a yes out of that? I didn't say they were released, nor did I say they were in stock. What I said was G was placing an order for the first ones off the production line. No more, no less.

My question was;

Why would Novak take orders for something they were NEVER going to produce. So I took the fact that Gerald was going to place an order to mean that they were going to eventually release a 231 Cable version... still means YES to what I was asking.
