A follower of this blog asked a question about removing the gas tank, and filler neck from their ’58 Ford Wagon.
His biggest question was how to remove the filler neck. Well, it is held into the tank with a large rubber o’ring. It shoves onto the filler neck, and then shoved into the tank. The gas neck also has a small bracket welded to it, near the top. It has a threaded hole in it for a bolt to hold it against the body. You must remove the bolt before getting the filler neck to be removed. Here is a picture of the neck & gas tank:
Hope these pictures help! Its always easier to visualize what you’re working with before attacking it. It is impossible to see the top side of the tank without removing it.
