While filling up my 68 today, I noticed a pretty large amount of fuel leaking out on to the ground. It appears to be leaking from the filler neck. It is not a leak from the tank, because once I quit filling the tank, the leak stopped. I removed my license plate and found the rubber hose to be in pretty bad shape. Also, my fuel cap does not fit real tight anymore so I would like to replace the filler neck too. Can I change these without dropping the tank? Anything I need to be aware of while doing this?

Yes.

You should be able to change both without dropping the tank. The filler neck slides out through the opening in the back. You should be able to purchase both from any aftermarket supplier like Firewheel Classics here in our area.

All you need to do to remove them is losen the hose clamps on the hose and remove the screws from the filler.

Let me know if you have more quesitons. I had to replace mine a short while back.

Is the glass half empty or half full???.....Neither, the glass is twice as large as it needs to be!

Don't be smoking or have any other ignition source around. Have the exhaust pipes be cool too. Try to have the tank empty. Remember, it is the gas vapors above the liquid gasoline that what ignites and flashes over.

This may not apply to your situation but....
I had a '73 with the neck joint leaking where
it mates with the tank. I used some JB weld around the area and it sealed it up good.
