Gas tank filler pipe question

Recommended Posts

Argh! Started to work on installing my new tank and thought I'd check the fit of the filler pipe first. Looks like I have a filler pipe for something else. Either that or the shop shortened my car. Yet another thing to order. Maybe this is an earlier model filler? 69's are shorter?

What size fuel tank do you have & what year filler neck do you have?. Is it possible you have the larger tank from a 1970 Mustang & the filler neck from the 69?.

No. Tank is original. I think the shop tossed in a filler neck for an earlier Mustang. Never had an earlier Mustang so not sure what I have. It was correct when they took the car apart.

I got a correct replacement filler the other day. Yep, my old one is for an earlier Mustang. Here are pictures to show the difference just in case someone else may come this way...

Yup :-) Wonder how many parts make up the car? If there was an electronic BOM, maybe one could find out. Guess I'll have to get a 65-66 as I now have a parts collection.
