What advise do you folks have for placement of the header tank in my J230?

The instruction manual states to put the header tank behind or under the rear seat bulkhead but I have heard from several people, including Jabiru USA, that the header tank is best placed under the right seat.

The problem I am having is, I don't see how the header tank can fit under the seat. I haven't cut open the right seat yet but from the outside, it does not look like there is enough room for the header tank.

Does anyone have any photos of their header tank installation?

Thanks for the help.

In the two seater jabs the header tank goes behind the p2 seat under the crossmember and on the J230 /J430 it used to go inside the base of the P2 seat. The j230 manual page 138 shows it behind the seat I think. I'll post you a pic of it mounted in the seat, but the other option I can't help with

Thanks for the info and photo Vic. Paul sent me the 2004 instructions showing how to intall the older tank under the right seat. The current tank does not appear to be compatible with that location.
