I have a 1960 Dodge Station wagon. It's been a pain in the a**e to fill with fuel. I've had to fill it with jerry cans as the inlet pipe restricted the flow and either shut the pump off or I got covered in fuel. I knew it wasn't the original tank when I could only get about 8 gallons in it... Anyway I muddled on through filling a jerry can and pouring it in until I noticed it leaked fuel when it was over half full. So I decided to investigate.
I removed the stone guard
And got a free lump of wood.
Here shows the bolt that was the leaky culprit. Shortly after it fell out!!
This is the reason for the filling problems
Pic from underneath the white light is where the filler neck goes. (fits from the outside)
This is the only reference I have of what the tank should look like. Unfortunately I have no measurements and the void underneath is somewhat tricky to measure.
I've been asking on the forward look forum and not had any joy there and wondered if any of you nice people have any suggestions?
