CJ5 Fuel Tank Problem

So I have a 1972 CJ-5 and need to find a new rubber piece to go around the fuel hose. This piece protects the fuel hose from the body. All the rebuild manuals call it a "grommet". I can't find this part in any magazine or online.

A piece of old radiator hose may work in a pinch

#tindlejd...apologize in advance but I am going to hijack your thread with another fuel tank problem.

The PO did a tank relocated to the back with a CJ7 system. The fuel filler hose has a hole for the vent tube. Does anyone make the metal piece which the connects the vent tube from the filler hose? I have been on the major Jeep aftermarket stores but can't locate this part. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Do you need the part that screws directly into the hose?



The HOSE BUNG?

The hose bung is what I linked above from Morris. I actually bought mine from the Jeep Guy. The repro part is identical to the original and USA made.

Yes...that is it. I can assure you I wouldn't have Google searched for a "hose bung" for fear of what the results would have been.

I am new to the Jeep world and appreciate all the help and links.

Interestingly enough, I have never clamped an alligator with one. You learn something new all the time here on JF. LOL

I just put in a new tank/sender/hold down ring from Morris and used the short fill neck version in hopes it would be less likely to crack around the base, it also fills WAY better at the pump.
