    Now I have a question regarding the tank vent...My tank was set up with the vent right on top of the tank...There was a 3in hose with a little plastic fitting like the one used to vent the diff. The set up looks original OEM.Seems it would be better to at least extend the hose up ...maybe fasten it to the fill neck....to keep fumes from gathering under the truck and keep it from the road dirt ,water ect.......
    I would (and have) paid extra for non-chrome (Made in Mexico ) parts.

    Can't remember since i swapped out my 76's tank for a 90 tank...but i do believe all 73 to 91 K5's vent to the side of the filler tube....i had to cut mine and graft a portion of the 90 filler tube on to make it work. I do have a none molested 77 and 79 in the backyard...usually the vent line has a metal tube that slides thru a holder on the fill tube with two pieces of hose on either side.
