I'm posting this link here, not to step on any shoe laces, but to help the next person searching for ideas.  Likewise, I'm putting a link to this option, on the other post.

No problem.

 

Info like this helps everybody. (options are important, because not everybody has access to everything, where ever they are)


This is why they call me Creepy, lol.

Here is another method:

 

http://community.rat...19#entry1024017

 

 

Okay, so long time no post lol, decided to tackle making a new filler neck for the dime, old one was pissing fuel....

 

Things youll need,

 

240sx filler neck

 

1 7/8" OD to 2.25"ID exhaust reducer, 240 and 510 use diff diameter hose

3-OD-to-2-1-4-ID-Universal-Exhaust-Compo

 

2.25" ID curved tailpipe

turndowns.jpg

 

2.25" ID fuel hose

 

5/8" to 1/2" reducer for vent line, i used a copper pipe

T2eC16FHJIIE9qTYI4OBQ5d2y7sT60_35.jpg

 

1/2" ID fuel hose

hose clamps

 

 

Cut the filler neck pipe off just before the curve, trip the shroud around the cap area down to around 1/8" to 1/4", just enough removed to be able to fit it thru the hole from in the trunk to the gas door pocket.

 

Weld the reducer onto the filler neck like so.

20131218_163635.jpg

 

Rather complicated compared to some, but i holesawed the center out of the factory 510 fuel cap holder to match the OD of the filler neck just behind the shroud, i think cut the plate in half and used it as a sort of "split ring retainer" for the filler neck. stick filler thru the body, then half at a time slide the plate peices onto the filler and lock em down with the screws.

 

Now that the filler is secured in the body, cut the ends off the curved tailpipe so you have a useable slight bend peice that fits into the 2.25"ID fuel hose. Cut sections of the fuel tube to connect the filler to the intermediate section, then to the tank.

 

I used an exhaust expander to stretch the hose just a bit to be able to slide it over the exhaust expander welded to the filler, intermediate pipe had no issue.

 

The vent line on a 510 is 5/8", a 240SX is 1/2", use your reducer in the hoses and get it connected up. I went hose clamp crazy because im paranoid.

 

Thats the ridiculously short and simple explanation of how I did it...

 

Oics.

The only issue is when I pull the nozzle out, the last few drips always get on the paint due to the tilt (or lack of) but thats with all my cars. Just a couple shakes and it solves that issue 

 

My wife's car (2013 model) has a sticker on the gas door that says "wait 5 seconds before removing nozzle". Oddly enough, this works every single time.

It's your car, just don't ruin it.


This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".

So i can hardly see the back side of full install but from what i see laying here ( 4 holes in my Mazda unit) i assume you re-drilled or used self taping screws  to match the holes already in car and plate that was cut down from OG inlet??



 

I'm guessing that they are not JDM, but rather TDM

Correct. I used self-tappers to do the original mockup, and then I removed them one at a time and replaced them with nice flat allen headed bolts.

^^^

Those Injen couplings look like they are from an air intake system. Do you know if they are fuel safe?

Also, I've determined, I'm not a hoarder, I'm a collector.
As I'm sure a lot of the old school datsun guys are.



Enjoy the Ride!

Other than an Isuzu Pup what is another compatible filler neck hose I can use that has the proper bend in it? I can't find one. Thanks in advance.
