• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

How to install fuel filler neck seal on ScoutII?

Hi all,

After repainting the Scout II, we are currently re-assembling all the bits and pieces on it. It didn't have a fuel filler neck seal to begin with, so I got a new one to install.
But how to install it?
Is it possible to install it without having to take off the fuel filler neck?
Any tips or links to videos would be welcome.

The car is a Tamarack Bronze 1977 Scout II, with original interior and exterior configuration, ordered by Swedish importer AM-Car. I enclose some images below.

best regards




I'm not going to say that it would be impossible to install the seal with the filler neck in place, but I sure wouldn't want to try it. With the filler neck removed, it becomes a much easier process, so that's my suggestion to you.

Unbolt the filler neck from the inside quarter panel and have someone lift up on the filler while you install the new seal. The filler necks down just below the cap, and although a little difficult to install, it is still much easier than in its current position.
