86 F150 Front Side Mount Tank wont fill
Recently got this truck for my 17 year old son. It is a 1986 F-150 4 X 4 with 5.0 Liter Engine - 4 speed manual - dual rear tanks - front is a side tank and we can't get any fuel into it. Has the long straight bed on it - not a flair side. The person we got it from put a new front side tank on it but it looks to be the wrong type of filler hose. I took it off and found just a short piece of the vent tube stuck in the filler neck.
Does anyone have a picture what the filler hose set-up is supposed to look like on this truck? Not even sure if it has the right hose. Also can I make a vent hose for it? I have tubing the same size and diameter as the piece I took out of it but I have no idea how long it should be or what it connects to at the other end in the tank or does just hang at the top the tank. The slope doesn't look right from where you put gas in to the hose to the tank. The filler tube runs down then actually goes up slightly to get over the frame member and then back down to the top of the tank so there is an up and down here.
Let me know if you can help out - I tried googling the dimensions on the vent line, a picture of the correct filler hose set-up and could not locate anything.
