Boler fresh water replacement

Hello to all on this amazing website. The snow is quickly leaving and I'm compiling a list of supplies needed for my 1974 Boler rebuild. One item that needs replacement is my fresh water tank. I live in Alberta and just wondering if anyone can recommend a local supplier.

I've included a picture of the end of the old tank. It would be so helpful if someone could help me identify the hose diameters that are commonly used now a days and the purpose of each.
Any advice would be appreciated for the membership. Thanks

Hi Arne

You may want to try my solution, I highly recommend it over replacing the original tank External Water Reservoir

Here is an ebay seller's store that has great prices on new replacement tanks that are made in the US. I just got mine today a 16 gallon and it was $29 for the tank and $29.87 for UPS Ground, very happy with it can't wait to get it installed: items in R and P Carriages Trailer Sales store on eBay!

I know this post is a few months old. But I am just starting my project. I have an original 16 gal water reservoir in the 73 Hunter. Hasn't been used in 20+ Years. I checked for leaks and have added some bleach to clean the visible crud. But I don't ever want to carry 16 gallons. Trying to keep it light.
This a great option that doesn't require power and I can ice the water.! I'll let you know how it works out. Any lessons learned over the last few months?
thanks ahead of time
