saw a nice mod in 2010

I was at ft stevens st park in oregon, in jan 2010. saw a very late model 25 fb with a nice ball valve that had a flex "choke control cable" attached and it could be operated by bending over at the waist and pulling said choke cable. It seems to me to leave the original alone and then make up a "flange" that will fasten to the tank, being sure to utilize the right sized hole to match the ball valve. I would put in at least a 3/8 or 1/2 inch valve-make a little brace for it so any movement of the handle did not translate into tank side flex. I think the owner of the above trailer said it was the best $45 he ever spent. I think it'd be a bit more than that, but you'd only do it once. ol' bill oh-point is I use this drain a lot.
