I extracted this information from Jim Carey off of the Yahoo! Loopframe_Guzzi news group. In Jim's own words:

I saw on this site a couple weeks back a clever idea for a gas tank spit. My Eldo tank has sprung a couple pin holes! So its time to strip it, weld it up and then seal it. So it seemed like a good idea to make up a spit for working on the tank.

1 inch square tubing, cast iron gas line fittings, a 38 inch diameter rod and an old water valve handle. I made it up into three parts to knock it down when not in use. Gas line fittings with a lock bolt threaded into the T to tighten it to the shaft and a stop on the frame to secure the shaft in place.
