Filler Pipe

Hi,

I’ve noticed that I have a small petrol leak coming from the filler pipe on my ‘83 CF250 facelift, where it meets the metal pipe if the tank. The rubber is completely shot so will need replacing.

I’m guessing it’s unlikely I can buy an off the shelf replacement?

Does anybody know the internal diameter of the pipe and what type is best for today’s fuel?

Thanks.

Just to clarify, the leak only occurs when petrol is poured into the tank.

Carboflex hose, 2 inch (51mm) inside diameter.

Mikalor or similar high pressure clamps (63-68mm) are better than worm drive clips for securing the hose to the tank and filler neck: smear water resistant grease on the screw threads and in the buckle ends of the clamps before fitting.

Thanks Phil. Do you know if a straight length of pipe will do, or does it require a 45 bend to attach to the filler neck?

On coachbuilt bodies the extension hose usually is straight.
