    does anybody sell this part, or do the parts stores have some straight rubber hose that would work???

    mine was all rotten and i tore it up when i dropped the tank.



    i think i'm gonna stab the engine in this week. we'll see....

    Greg, LMC sells the filler neck rubber.
    I think they wanted like $20 for it, but try finding it somewhere else.
    No, do no use radiator hose. It will gum up with exposure to gas and will eventually clog your fuel filter if nothing else.

    I got mine from a machine shop that works on tractors. Its stiffer than the factory hose and has a steel spring between the layers.Its the same type of hose used on tanker trucks.Been using it for 4 years with no problems

    Almost every auto parts store carries this hose, it is called filler neck hose and it comes in different diameters. It is not cheap but there is no other option here. It is about $5.00 a foot i believe.

    I tired EVERY parts store in town (Autozne, Hi-lio O-Reilly, Standard, NAPA) and no one had it.
    If there is a Mom and Pop auto parts store, they might have it.
    I still say LMC.

    Give NAPA a try. That's where I've bought it before. They sell it by the foot. It is kinda pricey...but you don't really need that much.
