Hi guys new to the forum (first post) I have been working on my 83 cj7 for about 3 years. 2 working and one sick starring at it. I am feeling better now and its time to finish what I started. I need to put my gas tank (20 gallon? Factory polly) back up and put the 2 new hoses on. The 2 hoses from the filler area are small is there a easy way to get the new hoses on and tank back up? Hope this kind of makes since.
th new omix sending unit that i installed has a leaking float so it just lays on the bottom. i wont say where i bought it cause i like them but there response was i bought it two years ago so no warranty. the factory 28 year old float didnt leak!. im understanding that alot of the aftermarket parts are junk!. make sure your feed,return,vent lines are all long enough to reach the tank while it sits on the ground. put a floor jack under it and put it up while balanceing it than connect the fill/vent hoses. it is not that hard. but by the way, the only thing that i have found to be simple on these jeep's is spending cash!
Thanks For the response, I never got to it this weekend. I put my dash back together, finished my painless taillight wiring, installed a driver side mirror, installed a new transfer case shifter boot and broke the knob (rust) now need to replace the lever and knob.
I always put anti seize on a nipple before putting the hose on. That way the hose will never stick on there. I use it for radiator hoses, heater lines, etc. Once I take the clamp loose, the hose will slide right off with out sticking.
Beat it to fit, paint it to match!
