Hey gang, question...

The plastic tube connecting from the filler cap down to the flex hose connecting to the gas tank has a crack in it. Hard to get a good picture, but it's this piece here: http://ihscout.com/product/fuel-filler-neck-plastic-style-scout-ii/ (that site btw is the cheapest I can find a replacement part).

The crack is below the lower mount to the body...so what I am wondering is instead of replacing the whole thing, can I just cut it off at the crack, buy a slightly larger diameter tube (maybe 3-4" in length), slip it over and clamp both sides? Essentially making a band-aid for it? By the looks of where the crack is, it seems to be a stress point. Not sure if perhaps the other connecting tube is slightly long pushing it back towards the body? This would give it some flex. I am a bit concerned about plastic particles falling into the tank however if I'm to cut it off (thinking dremel).

WWHCBD (what would Hill Country Binders do)? Any advice?

I repaired mine with JB Weld and it worked fine until I found a metal replacement. A section of rubber hose would work as long as it doesn't kink too bad where any bends are involved. There is a section of rubber where it attaches to the tank already.

If you can find a spring to go over the rubber hose, it may keep it from kinking. I did that with one of my new power steering hoses and it worked great.

Thanks for the response guys. I might do as suggested for a temp fix - cut it off at the crack (removing it from the other rubber hose first to keep debris clear) and then run a new hose all the way to the tank. I think I'm going to go ahead and get a replacement piece on order as well.

Negative. It occurred when filling up on my way to pick the kiddo up from school. Had to pull a quick plan B on that one.

I am going to swap in the replacement this week; fingers crossed it goes well -

Digging up an old thread here, sorry! But we have the same issue here practically. I'm pretty confident it's the plastic one (definitely not metal). A small gouge (from a sander or angle grinder) right in the curve below the lower body mount. By now, finding a replacement is laughable.
So the first idea was to go the JB Weld Waterweld route - second was to use a bicycle inner tube over it, with some type of aluminium can over that with clamps. (But my research tells me the inner tube can't handle gasoline)

Any better ideas or solutions? Carparts, ebay, rockauto, craigslist are all no dice. And for $3-400 dollars (that's about the money spent getting the engine back up and running in great condition) I'd rather do something else!
