36 Chevy Gas Filler Neck---Help!


A friend called me today. He recently bought a 36 Chevy sedan and to pass safety he says it needs the seal/grommet where the filler neck goes in to the gas tank. I never deal with such old stuff! Any of you guys recommend a supplier for this?

Is this a short piece of about 2" dia hose? If so a service station supply store should have.

No, he says it's sort of a grommet, not like the newer vehicles.

???
Is it where the filler tube comes up thru the body to the gas cap?
If so then Lynne Steele Rubber, Chevs of the Forties or Filling Station

I'll check Lynne Steele, thanks.

Think it was like a piece of rubber hose with a shoulder on it that went in the tank. You push and rock the neck in and the shoulder keeps the rubber from sliding into the tank. Could also use a big O ring Id think. My 57 uses the O ring style from what I remember....

I've looked around online and came up empty so far.

Can you get some pics of the area where it goes? May find something that will work amd be safe. The government inspectors would not know the difference?

Chevys of the 40's is your best bet. Have dealt with them before with no problems and they will mail if you ask.

Is it the original tank? I know that Ford and Dodge in the seventies used a grommet in the fuel tank for the filler neck. I havent seen a 36 Chevy but any old Chevies that I have seen the necks are either bolted and soldered to the tank.

Yes, still the original tank apparently.

I checked Chevys of the 40's website but couldn't find anything. Maybe I'll tell him to call there.

eBay one for 35-36, saw a couple of tanks that looked like this.

 This makes more sense. Sealing the filler pipe to the trunk floor, not to the tank itself.

He says this seal causes the tank to leak when it goes bad. That is what the shop doing the safety inspection told him, and that is why it fails the inspection. So I don't think that is the right part shown there.

I've searched ancient parts lists and can't find anything fitting the description... so, I'm curious to see what's needed here.

I understand '36 is a one year only body, so that may be the reason nobody reproduces the part. (???)

I'll try and get a pic of mine. I got a new tank from a company called tanks Inc. They may sell just the grommet your looking for

Thanks but he must have figured out something for it to pass the safety, I saw he was driving it the other day.
