Thanks for the link. I checked it out, looks like 20 bucks will buy the fill and vent hose. I don't have a problem with that, but holy man! They want 14-something for shipping!!! I'm going to check out some local suppliers and see what I turn up in town. I really dislike being shafted like that for shipping.

Me either but that hose fit perfectly.

New tank came in. There are a few small details where it differs from the O.E. tank. The vent tube terminates in a different spot inside the tank, there's no bracket for the rollover valve thingy, and the drain plug is deleted. All in all it looks good, but I gave it a coat of grey paint over the new paint anyways. There were some spots rubbed through to bare metal from shaking around in the shipping box. Got the old pump all cleaned up, new filter sock installed, and the pump in the tank with a new gasket. Also tested the fuel gauge to be sure it worked.

I'm working on replacing the brake lines now. They had been repaired in the past by running new lines under the tank. Since it's apart I can put them back over the tank, where they were originally.
