Petrol tank rubber hose - Australia

PostPost by: gordont » Tue Jul 08, 2008 10:05 am

Fitting an alloy fuel tank and have found the filler and fuel tank both have 2 different diameters (57mm and 51mm) does anyone in Australia happen to know who sells reducing fuel tolerable tubing so I can join the two?

thanks hopefully......

slowly slowly getting there

thanks but alas no go.

Looks like I will be chopping the tube off the tank and re-welding the same size as the filler :cry:
