|whiteyj||Success. We are complete and she runs! 3 hours to reinstall the tank and bumper. Empty my Jerry cans back into the tank in the morning and we're going for a ride.|

|whiteyj||The tank to fuel pump gasket "was" a rubber gasket with plastic sleeve inserts at the screw holes. The rubber is swiss cheese. All I can figure is the gas got to it over time. Good news is all the extra down time is giving me a chance to paint the skid, install all new hoses and tubing, and my new rear spreader bars in prep for installing the new soft top (we are getting our first rain).|

|whiteyj||Any suggestions for getting the gasoline smell out of the rubber isolator mat?|
|09-21-2007 03:21 PM|
Well tank is down and we have found the source! Gasket for the fuel pump assembly is shredded. Unfortunately the dealer can't get one until Monday and the local parts houses only have them with a new fuel pump assy..
Replacing all the hoses, vent lines and filler hoses as long as we're at it.
Bear was pulling the bumper so that the tank and skid would clear the back of the hitch!

|whiteyj||Skeeter, think I could talk Amy into doing mine?|
|09-18-2007 08:36 PM|
Ya but I watched
No, really, she helped get it out but my daughter and I put it back in.

|whiteyj||Fill & vents are dry.....I'm dripping off the skid plate. Just not looking forward to pulling the tank!|

|Teriod||i had a problem simular to this when i filled up,,, turned out to be the rubber gasket/oring in the locking gas cap, when it was full it would splash out and drip down the fill tube|

|whiteyj||Made it as far as getting her in the garage. Took the wife to Monterey for the weekend (our anniversary). Need to get going......|

|skeeter||How did it turn out?|
|09-09-2007 11:40 PM|
Hope I actually helped.
It really isn't that bad if you've got some help.

Told you s...
er um, pure hell.
It'll take about an hour to get it out with basic tools.
putting it back in is a real bitch though and will require 2 people.
Make sure you're just about empty to make things easier.
Just start taking the nuts that hold the skid plate loose, once you can move the tank try and get in to remove the fill hoses. and then it's just prying and yanking till you get it out.
Oh, and stuff a rag in the fill hose nipple on the tank to keep dirt from getting in as you work.

Good news...I found the leak.....Bad news it's in the tank area and not under the hood. Sitting in the driveway running to check it out and nothing under the hood. Walked around back and thought I was looking at moisture coming off the tailpipe....No such luck. Puddle forming from a pretty good drip. So obviously it's a return line leaking away.
So what are we in for in pulling the tank?

302 V8 auto 300$
HOW WOULD YOU GET THAT TO ILLINOIS???? DOES IT RUN?????

|HkdOnJP||pressure regulators and the injectors|
|09-07-2007 03:26 PM|
|mmasuperman12||i had a bad smell while drivign too but also while sitting it was the lines on top of the tank they were all dry and crappy|
|09-07-2007 03:11 PM|
Sounds like a project for the weekend. It has been ongoing for a while with faint smells but driving it into work this morning I really smell it.
|09-07-2007 02:52 PM|
|AzTJ||more than likely. If you buy an o-ring set from AutoZone, they come in a pack for all the injectors and the regulator. Might as well do them all at once.|
|09-07-2007 02:39 PM|
O-rings on the injectors or?
|09-07-2007 11:16 AM|
|HkdOnJP||i had same thing bad o-ring|
|09-07-2007 10:28 AM|
|skeeter||Vent or fuel line on top of the tank.|
|09-06-2007 11:14 PM|
If it smells of gas only when driving you have a leak somewhere.
Pop the hood and start it up. Start inspecting. Usual areas are injectors , fuel rail, and regulator. Most of the time is a bad O-Ring.

Locating source of gasoline smell
I am getting a fairly strong odor of gas. Top off driving. Have checked under the hood and don't find any damp areas. I have replaced the gas filter and all connections there are dry.
Drove 1/4m to the gas station tonight with a fairly strong smell. Back home popped the hood and found nothing out of normal just the "smell" of gas.
