The filler neck nipple and all the "vent" (eecs system) nipples are located above the frame rail and many of ya know how difficult it is to deal with those connections when the connecting soft hose is old and rotten!


Whats that off white hose running through the middle of that photo??

Since mr. Mayben probably won't be on here any time soon, to reply back, I had to look back on page one to look at the photo.
That cream colored hose appears to be the vinyl hose that connects the evap unit mounted up inside body panel near the fuel filler. Then that same hose connects t9 charcoal cannister in the engine compartment.

I use to see some loadstars at the junk yard. But not lately. Metal rescue will take off the rust. Por15 will coat the inside. Some patch panel out of 20ga would fix a bad spot.

Or build a new tank. Which is a lot of work!

I'm sure someone has a tank. Post in the wanted section here and binder planet

I've seen a late seventies southern California rv products replacement tank for sale and was wondering if anyone knows anything about them? Are they baffled and what is the cost of boiling it out and sealing it plus fixing any leaks?

What fuel tank works inside the frame rail ahead of the rear axle on a traveler/terra?

I quickly read the last 6 pages, my Scout is a major pain in the butt to fill up. After trying to see a problem, I think it is the short gas nozzles fill up my breather tube in the filler neck so it creates a giant air bubble in the tank and just fill the filler tube and breather. I'm thinking a new filler neck without the breather built in and a breather tube with a 1 way vent tied up next to it will solve my problems.

I usually have pretty good luck by rotating the filler nozzle so the hose is pointing up at about 10:00. Seems to help a lot, although its a pain to hold it up there while filling the tank. Didn't have that problem in so cal earlier this year, the frigging pumps there didn't shut off until the tank, filler neck, and expansion tank were full. Unfortunately the little hose at the bottom of the expansion tank was loose and started dripping gas onto my exhaust tip. Wonderful feeling when its over a 100 out and your 500 miles from home. Took about 20 minutes watching with the fire extinguisher handy for the filler neck and expansion tank to finish dripping.

Default Vapor separator repair, was Re: The "Fuel Tank" Thread

[please move to a better thread if there is one]

The liquid/vapor separator on my '72 has broken at the
fitting going to the charcoal canister. Since all the fluid
leaks are now fixed and the gas cap now seals, that's
the last leak remaining in the fuel system.

So far I can see three choices:
1. Fix the separator
2. Buy a used separator for ~100$ http://www.IHPartsAmerica.com/store/up-419124c2.html
3. Fabricate something that does the job.

Idea 1 seems to be a very long shot; no known glue will
stick, welding is possible but tricky and the part is subject
to at least a little strain from the hose.

2 makes me cringe. Anything I buy will be 35 years old,
and while likely in better shape than mine it's unlikely to be good.


3 looks like a possibility. One could try for a physical replica
of the original, but that's difficult and maybe unnecessary.
A ring of six tubing tees (4 down, to connect to the tank vents
and two up, one to the tank and one to the charcoal canister)
seemed like a fairly easy thing to try.

It turns out that 5/16" hose tees are not in stock locally and
around $3 each. By the time I order the tees, clamps and some
hose the cost and hassle are enough to make me seek guidance
before trying.

If anybody knows this won't work please warn me, if you've
tried and it worked even a little bit I'd be grateful if you'd share
what you learned. If there's a better way, please do tell.

Thanks for reading,

Bob prohaska

I had pretty good luck fixing one with marine tex. Need to rough the area up pretty good with some 80 grit to give it some tooth.

Can you describe the repair?

I could imagine gluing a crack or hole, that isn't subject
to mechanical strain. If you fixed a broken hose fitting
that's a real wake-up for me.

Thank you!
