Replacing a part prone to corrosion with stainless steel is king.

Well, as you can see, in stock form, the fuel pipe is having some kind off valve/door at the end off the pipe tankside.
Dunno why, but something went wrong with this part and results are that the car is impossible to fill up.
If I say: impossible, I mean impossible. It took me ten minutes to fill her with about 10 liters off fuel and half off it spoiled on the floor.... *sigh*

So, the pipe must be removed again and get rid off that litte door.

BTW, outlining the pipe itself was an challenge too. First the pipe was under big tension, so the gasket did not seal. Required some tweaking too.

To be continued.

Is that the flap so it doesn't leak if the car rolls over? Perhaps it was damaged by the heat of the welding?

Unfortunately the flange with rubber seal is not able to prevent the tank from fuel leaking.

Filled her up yesterday, all good, but today the tank started dripping fuel.... *sigh*.

So, I need to find me a new tank, or repair this one.

Does it not leak if you only fill it to 3/4 tank? Not the best and not a cure, but you're clearly in a "which dressing do you want on your shit sandwich?" situation until a solution presents.

It's what I do with the old land cruiser. Fill up to only 3/4 tank. Otherwise the garage smells like gasoline.
