Fuel tank breather hose

Bob,

There is a fuel tank breather / overflow hose. I guess that means the cap is not vented?

This is the style I used.You can shop around for a better price. I bought 2 for that price.You have to modify the insert that fits inside the tank filler neck.The threads have to be ground down .When you get a nice fit then use some J B weld to seal it in place.It's not a bad job just take your time and it will com e out sweet.
