In the process of replacing meter housings with stainless, I was thinking do the meters need to be pressurised. Could a person put a line on the outside of the tank to the top then put a bulk head in to pressurize the tank?

Yes yoou can run a line to the top and presurize that way and it does not matter if it is double shoot.There is a thread on here from the past called "JD 1910tank bridging"read it,it tells you all you need to know about this subject and it has pictures to show how it can be done.We did it on our's and it works awesome.

Thanks for the heads up on the previous thread. Our tank is a double shoot could u have 2 hoses coming from fan where they do and have a 3 way valve to pick top or bottom shoot to only pressurize the tank itself and not even put anything through the meter?

Only pressurize tank at top, would be nice to not have to, pull side plates off where the hoses go now to blow everything out?

That is how it is done,there are 3 ,3 way valves mounted somewhere on cart ,one for each tank, then there are two hoses one from bottom shoot and one from top shoot going into each 3 way valve.Then the out of of each three way vale is run to the top of it's respective tank.We never take side plates off anymore,to clean out where hoses used to go into to presurize,we could'nt if we even wanted to cause nuts are rusted on.It would probably be better if the hollow area inside meter housing were kept clean so fert dust does'nt just sit in there and rust away, meter housing still is pressurized though because air enters through hollow pipes on the inside tank ladders.

I take it the tank guages to know if lid open or no air pressure in tank are inoperable now because no air flow going into bottom of meter housing?

Tank guages still work normal because meter is still pressurized,air enter meter housing through hollow pipes on inside tank ladders.
