Need some Quick help on a gas tank
« on: February 16, 2008, 12:51:47 PM »

I bought gas for Polaraco today.  When I stooped down to take the cap off, I realized the filler neck was loose.
 
I went home to tighten it and saw gas dripping out of the filler neck seal on the tank.
 
The question is
Will the filler neck from an ABE work in the C tank?  I'm thinking it will.  I need to order a new one quick.  At the price of gas. . . .

Sorry, I was looking for something specific on fuel tanks and saw this old thread...
 
The filler necks are NOT the same from 65 to 74!!!!  For instance - 65 Fury fills thru the quarterpanel (a 1-year, 1-car-only tank!), 65 Dodge behind the license plate, 65 Chrysler between the taillights.  In addition, I discovered the tanks and filler necks are not the same between a 66 Newport and a 68 Fury, even though both fill behind the license plate.  They were close enough that the mismatch did not leak gas, though.

They're talking about the fill-pipe diameter for the grommet,  fill-pipe to tank........not the location.    They are all pretty much the same in diameter.

But you're right!   gotta watch the bad info out there.

I didn't fully know whether they were talking about grommet interchanges or filltubes interchanges. 
 
Yeah, I may have thrown a ringer in by mentioning the 65 Fury, but the length and bend angles differ between some of the rear-fill cars also, that was the case with 66 Chrysler vs 68 Fury.  I just wanted to give a heads-up over headaches I had in the past...
