Customer Question

how do you attach a custom filler neck on a 57 chevy truck. I relocated the gas tank to an underbed gas tank. And have routed a filler neck through the fender, but leaks between filler neck and gas tank. Liam

hello I will help you with your question,

I can't tell from the picture but was the tank adapted to the hose? It looks like something was soldered in to allow the hose to connect but what is the clamp on the tank nipple part?

Where is the leak?

If you can't tell try putting 1 - 2 psi of air pressure in the tank and spray the area with soapy water to see where it is leaking.

Let me know what you can so I can help

Thank you

From the picture it looks like the clamp on the hose is stripped. Does it tighten completely?
