Yesterday I finally bought a fuel tank out of a 96 caprice can anyone help to install it on my 70 caprice I'm installing a ramjet 350 I'm going to change the fuel pump with a 255 walbro and I've read about installing a corvette fuel filter/ regulator any one I need the help its my first time doing this type of job if anyone has pictures or a link on how to please post it and setting up the lines also thank you
Thanks but I need more help I figured out how to install it but now I'm not sure how to set up the fuel lines since the top of the sender has three lines I think I need to cancel one I've seen it on another forum but I can't find it I need help
Thanks I know its for vapor canister but what do I do with it if I'm not using it do I just plug it or what do I do with it, I'm putting in a 350 ram jet crate engine its already in the car I just need the fuel delivery
Unless you had a vented gas cap, or you were willing to "modify" a gas cap to be "vented", I wouldn't plug it. I think the other option would be to put a length of line on it with a filter of some sort?
I'm thinking that the filter would help keep dirt and gunk out of your gas tank?
Newer vehicles have stainless steel tanks as opposed to galvanized mild steel which are attacked by the acids formed in the gas by alcohol and moisture drawn from the air. They all are baffled and have a reserve sump with a separate sender to signal low fuel as well as a return line. By comparison an early model gas tank is a just a big stamped steel gas can, little more than a square shaped box with a hole in it to add fuel.
A foam filled fuel cell is still cheaper and easier to install but far from appearing stock if you are into pro mod or street mod (or actually race the car).
I had a vapor canister on a car, which meant there was a hose running from the tank to the canister. After removing the canister, I cut off a lot of the hose and attached a differential vent form Summit #SUM-E730300 to the end of it. Haven't had any problems with it.
