BL fuel filler hose issue
 
I installed the JKS BL brown dog MML today! it was a PITA(the MML was anyway) but its done. the only issue is the gas filler hose is not long enuf to reach the tub to reinstall. Is there a quick fix for this? whats the best way to correct it? seems like an additional part should have come with the BL to extend the fill tube. Any help is appreciated.:popcorn:

Loosen the clamp holding the hose to the tank itself. It should have enough slack there to allow you to stretch it back into position. And your right about the MML being a pain....just have to make sure to mount the mounts to the frame before you insert the crosspin...gettin it to line up is easy enough with a small pry bar thas smaller dimension then the bolt itself.

Yea I used a nail punch to line it up and was good to go. Also had to use a putty knife to get the MML to fit in the brackets, it was tight. Seems good though and I am not sure but the engine feels a bit smoother now so overall happy with the results. 1.25 inches actually makes more difference than I expected. Now to get tires in a couple weeks! think she will look much better then.

I am going to try to pull some slack on the current hose and see if I can get it to work and will post what I end up having to do to make it right. Thanks for the feedback.
