Try general aircraft services in Pendleton, OR (USA) Carl Hagglund has a bunch of UH1H stuff squirreled away.

Are you talking about the rubber bag that got strapped into the quarter compartment, commonly known as a Quad Tank? Held about 500lb?

Your right Eric, there is a company that makes a 73Gal Aux tank for the old clunker :D

Think the HeliBro boys had a couple 44gal drums plumbed up in the back for their trip over the ditch one year...

The Royal New Zealand Air Force had a bunch, for both the left and right quarter compartments. You could even fit two at once. No payload left for freight, but gave the ol girl pretty good legs! They were commonly referred to as Aux Bags, and yes, they were the rubber/fabric type. The RNZAF only retired their Hueys two years ago (mostly to museums), so unless the Aux Bags were destroyed, they must be about somewhere. Good luck!

Oh...and they held 900 lbs (yes, nine hundred pounds) each.

Cheers.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I was away working.
NUP nothing yet, if you hear of anything let me know, may just end up with a turtlepac, maybe.
