Cardinal Grammeter Posted December 23, 2019 Report Share Posted December 23, 2019 (edited) Got a beautiful tank from Bud's from OK. VENTING: I don't have the expansion tank, nor the canister (although I'd like to get one to go with the plumbing that is still intact.) I'm thinking: *) Block or connect together the 2 top tubes that go to the exp tank *) Connect the remaining (aft most) to the line at the top of the filler neck. EDIT: put a "T" in this hose near the top and let this be the vent - maybe some hose hanging from it *) Use a vented cap NOTE: My current tank has some of those top fittings unconnected so maybe just hook up the way it is now since it doesn't seem to be a problem. The filler neck tube is unconnected too. HOSE: Concerned about the PITA supply line side fitting up against the frame. If that hose goes bad, have to remove tank to fix. In concerned about longevity and alcohol. Maybe use Gates fuel injection hose? There are Marine and Aviation hoses that are better. The PTFE lined hose is great but should use special fittings - I don't want to mod the end-bulged tubes coming out of the tank. EDIT: Just talked to tuner friend and NAPA sells an E85 "rubber" fuel injection hose. I'll use that. These are the clamps I want to use but might use the screw type considering how access is (if any): SPLASH GUARD: I might make something to keep spray off the forward 2 bolts on RHS that rot out. DEATH: I laugh! I'm doing this job like I want truck to last 40 years - I'm 67! hahahaaaaa Edited December 23, 2019 by Cardinal Grammeter Quote Link to comment
