fuel cap

Postby riverracer » Sun Dec 02, 2012 1:22 pm

does anybody know if a 67-69 vented fuel cap will fit my 72 tank which uses a sealed cap?

started having fuel problems and have found the tank is sucking bad,
very hard to remove the cap after a short run, then a big in-rush of air when it does come off.
thinking either the separator valve on the tank (have a receipt for a new installed unit) or something wrong with the vapor canister.
if i leave the cap loose, no problems, only shows up with less than 1/4 tank

any ideas?

anyone have a vented cap they are not using?

Mine had a vented cap from a 69 on it when I got it before I changed it to a sealed one.

So as long as the 72 and 71 have same size inlet you should be fine.
