Good idea on the deletion of the expansion tank and charcoal canister ... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

So to do this, one just needs to cap the nipple at the neck of the fuel filler?


No, I would not cap that small nipple in the neck but rather run a short hose to a "T" in the larger over flow hose coming from the filler surround.
I found these pics in a thread related to the same subject on real 914-6 expansion tank discussion.



But as shown in this pic running the expansion hose to the "T", instead run the hose from the filler neck nipple to the "T". My current plan.


Or you could just run the small hose and the larger one out the bottom of the car if you can't find a "T" (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) You don't want the tank to "pressurize".


Awesome, thanks for the expansion/charcoal deletion information. I like that it will look a lot cleaner in that area and lose a tiny bit of weight at the same time. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Trunk Is Finished! I think….

Finally received my fire extinguishers after almost 2 months! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

Look back a few posts to #365 where I learned all about fire extinguishers and took coondog’s recommendation on which ones to buy plus Defianty’s inspiration on the custom trunk board.

So I had a nice board in the frunk but I now had to anchor that board in order to mount the extinguishers to it so nothing can fly around. Created some mount brackets.

And an aluminum board stiffener / extinguisher mount.

Jim's car is awesome, he's right at that point before fire-up where you can't wait to just drive it and have a normal running car.

Been there, done that.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) Yes I guess I am. That was a complement right? Thanks!

You said you wanted the car to go to someone who would finish it. That's me! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I had a goal to get it off the jack stands of last week and that didn't happen and now this week is already drawing to a close (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smash.gif)

Actually it is a good thing I am not rushed because I keep finding stuff under the car to do so it is OK. Got a lot done today including under the car about 10 times.

Thank you sir, that is quite a complement! Right on, I am getting closer to that point of right "before fire up"!

And you are 100% correct I am getting anxious to drive it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Thing is I want it "done" like you took the car to someone and then you pick it up "DONE" done. Sure there will be sort out stuff getting it running but that's expected. Getting close now. 5 hours on it today again. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)

Thanks Oscar for weighing in! Yeah that temporary calendar slowed me way down. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
Actually with what I got done today the list IS shorter and nothing got added to it for a change. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif) I will post more later with pics.

Nope wasn’t done in the front trunk! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

Not so funny but really good story in the end. A while back Jett posted WTB for an original gas tank overflow drain hose. I knew I had one and at the time was focused on the engine and engine compartment and had not visited the frunk in a while (there is a hint). I was happy to help him out and sell him this very dark colored somewhat stiff but still somewhat pliable original hose.

Fast forward a few months to when I realized I had sold Jett MY hose (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) because when I sold it I completely thought mine was installed and this one was extra. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/051103-stupid4.gif)

I sent him a PM just wanting to share my experience, my stupid mistake, and word to the wise to always check your car before selling anything. Duh! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) I was not looking for it back, but that I was now looking for a replacement myself now.

To my surprise he said "Thanks for reaching out" and he had a friend who found some plastic tubing that was close. And he’d check and see if he still had it. Well he did and he got me a piece and he even shipped to me it free! How cool is that? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

Have to say it is great hose and does not kink. Don’t know much more than that about the hose but it works perfect and I wanted give credit where credit is due to Jett for being such a cool guy. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif) Thanks Jett I am totally happy with this hose.

"Jett" hose installed

Looking at the picture above, to the left of the new "Jett" yellow gas tank overflow hose, are my oil cooler hoses headed back down toward the longs and to the engine. Always thought that hose routing decision had eliminated the windshield washer bottle. Until now. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif) I was looking at dimpling in the bottom of the washer bottle yesterday to create room but it actually went right in. Crazy! Replaced brake reservoir hose, Gas tank vent hose, and windshield washer hoses too. Small stuff I know compared to guys doing major welding and such, which is humbling, but they will likely need to do all this little crap too one day. It all counts.
OK now done with the frunk! For real! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) Back to the engine compartment.

Thank you for the kind words but it’s easy to help someone with such passion. I’ve been restoring cars as a hobby for many years and this is by far the best community of enthusiast’s and people. ...probably why we keep restoring 914’s (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Btw. Now the cars are bonded by the hose (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Cheers!

Funny, that hose looks like it is either filled with coolant or soylent green. Glad it works well though.

As a test, I too decided to ditch the charcoal and recovery tank set up on my car. I will report back as to gas smells. I rarely top off my tank, so that may lend itself to no fumes, but we shall see.

Yeah that's it! Soylent Green! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)
This hose, although it may not be the correct color, is not your normal clear hose you get at Depot that kinks when you look at it. This does not kink on that radius out of the tank. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Be sure to run a hose from that small breather at the top of the gas tank filler neck all the way down and out the bottom of the pan or you will get fumes. I wonder if that may have been Forresthaag's issue?

Can't wait to hear. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

Here is where the breather ended up. I was trying to leave as much room as possible by the oil filter for changing.
