  • any tricks to getting gas filler tubes on the tank?

    changed the gas tank on my xj today and i cant get the filler tubes back onto the tank. when its up high enough to get them on i cant get my hands in there to put them on, and when its lowered enough to get in there they dont reach. any one have an ideas on getting them on?

    This is how Mine Went

    When I replaced my fuel pump, I had to drop the tank a little to slide it as far to the passenger side as I could. Then raise it up enough to get my hand up there and the hoses on the tank fittings. Then using extendo-reach pliers and flat-head screw drivers wiggled the hoses and tank into place. I do not remember a ton of swearing. But I do remember having to exercise my patients because it was a process to get it back together. Mine is the newer style plastic tank though. I do not know if that matters much in getting the hoses on and off the tank.

    What I know,

        i got the tubes over the openings but cant get in there to tighten the clamps without them coming off. dumped a jug of gas in it and it didnt leak so hoping they will stay on for now
