Thank you both for your hardwork.

I called both places. The place in Iowa I'm still waiting to hear back from. Dennis Carpenter has it and my price guess was dead on (includes shipping).

I am going to look around a little before I pull the trigger however. I suspect I have some wiggle room here on getting an exact replacement vs. something that "will work." I mean, we are talking about a 19" long piece of hollow plastic pipe, not an engine crank. There should be some more cost effective substitutions out there..

By the way, I seem to remember the eyelit in the tank (the part the vent tube fits into) just being a smaller hole in the nipple. If the vent tube just fits inside the metal filler neck without being secured in anyway, what would theoretically prevent the vent tube filler neck from simply sliding through the eyelit and into the fuel tank?

The tube is pinched a little at the top of the filler neck I believe or maybe its pinched a little coming into the tank one of the two just can't remember which one.

just to close a thread. my father had some 3/4" O.D. clear rubber hose (very firm and difficult to bend) that he had uses to transfer kerosene from a barrel outside to the heater in his porch. well, i took that hose, a flashlight and a mirror and was able to see inside the rubber hose that connects to the tank and fished the clear hose down into the tank and successfully got it into the eyelit. I then cut the clear hose about 3 inches longer than the end of the rubber hose so I could fish that up into the metal filler tank. I did this and put it all back together and went to put gas in it and everything filled up fine. no premature clicks while filling the tank.

so all in all a good and quick fix and i didn't have to drop the tank. i'll update this thread again if and problems crop up but thanks to ctu for providing me with the hose dimensions.

All, resurrecting an old thread here...

Removing the filler neck from the Flareside parts truck as part of the bed swap I'm doing.

Disconnecting the filler pipe from the tank, it looks like the inner flexible hose is very firmly fit into (or attached to) a metal block just inside the tank.

I hate to just yank it out / cut it off. Is it just stuffed in there, or is there something I'm missing???

Argh ok how simple was that - to your point it just pulled. It was in pretty tight and I didn't want to just herc on it and destroy something but in this case that's what was needed.

Bill, great pics as always thank you. I'm replacing the Styleside midship tank filler neck with this one from the flareside. Have to figure out what to do with the aft axle tank filler, I'm going to leave it in the wheel well for the moment but may graft in a second fender door or run it to a flush mount in the bed.

Yeah... Ya know, *someplace* I have a picture (an actual photograph taken in my garage) of what that filler neck looks like and the way that plastic tube is held in place, I wanted to show you what you're dealing with... but I'm at work during the day and couldn't find a copy of it quickly and easily, and forgot all about it when I got home....

No worries! All I needed was your "just pull"
