Not sure how to word this but,where the filler neck comes thru the fender well('65 model) is there a gasket of some sort?I don't mean the donut at the gas door.
Thanks
Buster

Big rubber ring around the filler tube to hold it in the structure if I remember right. I haven't put mine on my Monza yet but remember ordering the rubber ring and the 2 hoses for the filler tube and the vent tube.

The door only has rubber bumpers to hit on.

He's asking about the INNER fender well!

Nothing is used there!

Many cut it larger so the Hoses can be changed without removing the tank,

But many of us do not want to cut our cars. The hoses/clamps are pretty easy to get to without cutting. I use 1/4 inch drive sockets with a long extension. No cutting necessary IMO.

I am going to have to replace my gas hose also this Spring/Summer some time.
Is there a thread that details doing this?
Or,
maybe someone who has done this already, could share some insight and give some helpful directions.
Please?thumbs up

Cut old hose off. Preset clamps above where hose will be located and tighten to keep them there until hose is in place. Get a jar of vaseline and apply to hose id as a lubricant. Work hose on while holding off your frustration. 1/4 drive socket and extensions best tools for clamps.

Experts will improve on this info. I don't know if tank comes down or filler neck comes up. I will be doing mine with tank out and filler neck out.

Buster:

Just send your filler neck thru the structure and install the rubber ring on neck into the structure. Vaseline will be your friend, along with the seal being warm and pliable.

Al,I have no problem with my filler neck or tank,I was installing wheel lip moulding and noticed the big hole the filler tube runs thru,I thought there may be a grommet that was missing.

Buster... I was just mentioning the cutting / enlarging of the opening of the INNER panel for what I stated!

As far as TIPS:

1 Raise car as high as possible or on a lift..

After totally disconnecting tank underneath.... go to gas filler and with a 2x2" place on steel of filler...whack with large Mallet and tank will fall down on ground... with Rubber donut on neck..

If Donut is to be re-used... start soaking / heating it!

Hopefully the 1-5/8" hose piece is VERY FLEXIBLE [ as OEM ]

If so... hoses can be tightened before installing tank as it will flex enough..

I think that is why most have trouble re-installing..... and YES I once was in a hurry ... out in a small town...and used NAPA Gold Hose..... I will go to my grave knowing that hose will still be fine!!! LOL!!

Matt the tank is new.I had to replace the tank on my EM and then r&r it for a brake line,I'm no stranger to the tanks,it looks like the LM would be easier tho.

I have a '66 that has a huge hole in the inner fender that the pipes go through.
It was this way when I got it.
Not a purist, so I cut some aluminum flashing to "shrink" the size of the hole a little, and sheet-metal screwed it on (carefully).
I used some black caulking under the edges.
I then spray painted it black to somewhat match the undercoating.
After a little road grime, it is barely noticeable.
Your methods may vary. winking smiley

Sounds good to me Kevin,I find that large of an opening inviting to too much stuff.

When I looked at my Monza this morning, I was thinking of trying to fins a rubber boot that could cover that opening. I have some flat rubber that might fit the bill. Another thought for down the road.
