Next, the fuel fill neck.
« on: May 26, 2011, 02:16:21 PM »




See that screw...I didn't at the time of this photo.

It was worse than I expected.









Bad gasket, will replace.



I cleaned off all the loose stuff.



All cleaned up.



I had to come up with a way to clean this up w/o trashing the fuel filter.
So I did this and used a SS wire brush and a vacuum to remove most of the debris.



The wire brush couldn't get it all, so I had to use fine sand paper, and again with the vacuum.






All done until the gasket set gets here.



Now I picked up that spring, not sure where it came from, but while cleaning up I found another spring.



As I figured out, the second spring wasn't part of this project.



I wonder if there is anything I could seal the pitted set with that wouldn't breakdown in the presence of fuel?

Gasket sealants are usually resistant to petroleum products - read the label and it will tell you.

Dug a hole and covered him up
Now I sit there by the hour

Do you think I should put something like gasket sealant on there?

Sure, why not?  I can't see it doing any harm.

Thanks, I'll do it.
