John I did not take it that you said I should do it right away. Sorry if I made it sound that way. It never hurts to post the rules. Now this got me to thinking. If I had a fire in the shop that set the tank off and a fireman got hurt in the explosion I can see the lawyers's mouths watering. My son's a fireman so I do have a personal interest, not that I shouldn't anyway.
Accidents can happen around a fuel barrel for sure. My neighbor was fueling his Allis 190XT diesel. The fuel tank is behind the cab and my neighbor put the nozzle in the tank and walked away for a minute. In that minute's time his dad got in the 190 and drove away with the nozzle still in the tank. Neighbor came back to see his dad driving across the yard dragging the hose and fuel spraying out of the broken off fitting on the fuel pump. There was no fire, but the yard wasn't dusty there for awhile. Have a good one. Jim

Here it is. I don't like cobbled wiring. Now the birds have a couple of places to roost. LOL When (if) the barrel is moved next summer the flex cable can be taken out of the disconnect and reconnected into a box at the new location. Getting that sucker screwed into the fitting and snaking the wires in under the fuel pump was a bugger. Frozen fingers didn't help matters. I won't have to do that again, thank god. I wanted to go down the wall with the wiring to the light pole and underground to the pole but we're frozen now. The camera lens on the cell phone was a dirty mess. Didn't realize it till I previewed the pic on the compuker.

The LED yard light does a very good job within 20 feet of the pole. I can see to read 30 feet away. Its 18 feet off the ground. I can see to walk 100 feet away but I don't plan to read a book that far away from the light. It does have a refractor lense and it's too bright to look at within 50 feet or so. Jim
