73 bay fuel filler

  1. Just wondering if anyone has replaced the fuel filler hose with the engine still in
    And if anyone has put a hatch in to access it
    Thanks Nick
     
  2. Just replaced the rubber sleeve and hose behind the filler cap with the engine out.

    Can be a difficult job trying to connect the hose between tank and pipe. I had to leave the tank straps disconnected to properly get hose connected. The rubber connection behind the filler cap needs to be accurately positioned and a trial fit would help.

    I made an inspection hatch but only usefull for checking sender unit.

    Make sure you get the correct parts. The ones I was originally sold were for a t25 and the connection behind the filler cap did not align with the 4 cap screws.
     
  3. Engine out is so much easier to do the job.

    I believe if you've a type 4 engine it can be done in place, but for a type 1 I'd say remove the engine.
