Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: : I'm using a corrugated pipe to mock-up my 80 Vette exhaust (because of extensive work) and you can bend it to any curve you want. I'm only using it to shape the two pipes that have to be fabed up to fit the frame. Not sure if this would help you. You could cut it off and have an exhaust shop bend a section to fit. Besure you can find the correct diameter first.

: Sorry to say this is a common porblem with all reopo tubs. I found if I trimmed the rubber where the neck sticks through the hole then it worked OK. I have been told this has been fixed along with the correct placement of the filler neck on mew repos. Anyone seen inprovemets? Bill

I have had the same problem. Looking at differant tanks I have found that some tanks have a larger lip where the ends are crempted. Measuring other tubs the fuel fill and outlets holes are the same
so I belive it is the tanks that are wider. You can do some body work and move the hole or cut the rubber and make it work.

Good Luck
