#1 Fuel Tank, venting pipes.

Post by mikebryan » Tue Dec 04, 2018 6:58 pm

The brand new fuel tank has arrived for my 1968 (ex USA) S1.5 OTS. Unfortunately I ordered the version with the three venting pipes ( US emission complient ?? ). The old tank has the single vent pipe, venting, via a pipe to below the fuel filler neck.

Anyone else made this stupid mistake and how did you get round the problem.

Thanks for your help

Cheers

Mike

Or couple the 2 unnecessary vent pipes together with a piece of correct size flexible fuel pipe and jubilee clips.
