Fuel filler line hose

Why are there two hoses here and not just one?

A shop had the tank boiled for me due to old gas from previous owner and took a closer look after smelling gas in the cab and it seems to be coming from the sending unit, but also can smell it from the double hose connection too

Any input would be great

thanks

Another thank you to your previous owner(s). Probably some kind of band-aid for reasons unknown, but likely to cover up a cracked or leaking filler hose. A single hose would be correct.

That looks awesome!

It looks like I have the wrong filler neck in my truck.

thanks very much for that sweet picture. Any chance you could take another one or two further away and including the top where it goes out the cab so I can see the top bend. Mine seems wrong there too as the entry seems flat

if you have time could you get me a measurement(s): length of tube, hose (i see some as being 3Ē and some 4Ē when I look to order)

thanks

EDIT
OK. NOW I CAN SEE THAT YOUR PICTURE DOES GO ALL THE WAY TO THE CAB. SOMEHOW MY PHONE WAS CUTTING THAT OFF. I DEFINITELY HAVE A MUCH AHORTER FILLER TUBE
THANKS

Hey Sedona,
Welcome aboard! We had the same problem in our '50 when we got it.... a very stinky
gas smell in the cab. Seemed to be worse when you filled it all the way up.
We changed the sending unit gasket & and the pipe. It still smelled and made for a bad experience.

We moved that nasty tank out of the cab & bought a 22 Gallon '70 Mustang tank
and mounted it out back under the bed..... much better & 40% more range.
There are numerous write up's on here - just search for jniolin - he did a great job
documenting the process. The tank was $120 from Rock Auto - sending unit another $70, etc.
I'd say it was a medium effort project due to sending unit & venting challenges .. but well worth it.

Looking good over there in Sedona.

Checked those and more. Canít tell if what they have is the same because daaaang. Have you seen their websites?! Wow. Seems to be zero demand to invest in a decent website for customers regarding these classic car parts. When I called one they agreed and said to check out their catalog for the best shopping experience

Will have them send those out and will call today for dimensions on what they have in stock

thanks for the info numberdummy (are you an accountant in denial or in hiding or...?)

Ok. Thanks. Good to know that if I replace all the parts it still may smell like gas. Lol

I did see those threads on relocating the gas tanks. I like the idea of moving the original to the front/back of the the bed. However you read it, but closest to the cab

The tank in mine is definitely 20 gallons and was a fire fighter truck (chiefs maybe) so not sure what these trucks came with or whether the fireman changed the tank out for something bigger (Since you mentioned there are 22 gallon mustang tank gave you 40% additional range.)

All Iíve been doing since I got it is driving it everywhere (1200+ miles in a week!) and not researching the specs... yet.

thanks Austin

The stock gas tank in the 48-52 trucks was 20 gallons. In the pictures it appears you have the stock tank. I can't tell about your filler tube, though. It should be a straight tube, and you mentioned something about a curve. There are 2 different versions, a 48-50 and a 51-2. The only difference is the size of the gas cap, the early neck uses a larger gas cap where the later has a more modern size. They are interchangeable. If you need one it's likely someone here has an extra one laying around as several of us have parted out many of these over the years and have left over pieces available.

NAPA sells the hose in bulk, by the foot. I wouldn't want any OEM/NOS hose, it won't be rated for gasohol. NAPA p/n 1055

PS I've had my stock tank installed and running for 17 years and never had a lick of gas fumes in the cab. Much of the time the culprit is the sending unit gasket.

FWIW, I had an ongoing slight smell of gas in my '49 cab. I found a weld on one of the internal baffles had broken thru to the outside of the tank. When the tank was nearly full, the area of the weld would seep fuel. Leakage was so little that what fuel escaped would evaporate and leave little trace of the leak. That was a tough one to find. Remember, these tanks expand and contract and after sixty plus years, it had flexed enough to break.
