      Purge gas from live steamers for shipping or moving

      I have 3 Accucraft live steamers the movers will not move with the gas in the tanks.

      Any suggestions on how to completely purge the gas tanks?

      Sure. Open the gas valve until no more comes out of the jet, then unscrew the fitting for the valve or the filler and that should do it.

      I do that to new engines to make sure the gas tank does not have any debris that may later on plug the jet.
