Fuel Tank Breathing System

PostPost by: bengalcharlie » Tue Apr 27, 2004 9:44 pm

Hi guys,

I have a stromberg running plus 2 and I would like to get rid of the two long breather hoses of the fuel tank.
I came up with three possible solutions:

1) put a plug in one of the tank breather holes and attach the other one to the fuel filler neck (weld a nut in the filler neck which allows you to screw in a nipple which you can undo in order to remove the filler neck if necessary)

2) connect both tank breather hoses together and at the end of it you would fit a one way vacium valve which allows to suck air into the tank but does not allow petrol or air going the other way

3) a combination of the two

I hope some one has already experience with this matter and your help would be appreciated

Greetings, Is this related to fuel fumes/evaporation? I believe there are two active threads on this subject in the +2 forum.

Try Spyder for idea's - they supply an exchange modified tank filler neck to allow the connection of a breather pipe.
