Ah right, thanks for the information very useful!
Mick motors has it in stock!
You just have to find a good pipe place for the metal section, @kahuna kombi got some pipe work done on is kombi tank if he can recall where he purchase it from, might help where to source it for yourself in Victoria.
Awesome thanks a lots I'll grab one of those and I'm halfway there.
Don't forget the hose clampsx3
I bought this kit from Canada as back then the fuel delivery hose was nigh on impossible to get - https://germansupply.com/fuel-filler-rubber-hose-bus-72-76.html
As for model &/or year fitment it may depend on the filler neck
Thanks for the info! Cheers
If you haven't located a picture of the fuel filler pipe here is one - (I'm not sure what year model it is) - apparently it's from a '69 DOKA
Ok - just found this ..... https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=1598546
I expect that VW would not make a different part - more likely to adapt a part to the purpose (may be wrong) ..... the metal neck
Yeah thanks for that, I think Dean has found a suitable replacement in his pile of spare parts, I think it looks more or less right. I have bought the recommended rubber fuel hose from Micks Motors as well.
thanks @kahunakombi,thought you had brought one, just didn't know where. At least it can point someone in the right direction.
This is how my 76 SC looks and this would also be from a SC 73>
My 72 DC ute has a longer metal filler then a longer rubber hose to the tank. only has two clamps instead of the three.
Yeah Wayne, the length could vary as the "kit" I bought for my 1973 Van from Canada overall was the same length as the piece of the fuel delivery hose and the piece of metal pipe was to get the right angle to connect to the tank.
1972 & 1973 Vans I believe did not have the rubber filler neck ..... my '73 had a metal filler and neck so possibly the SC & DC's had a similar setup and thus only 2 clamps
Angle close to 90 degrees so you'll have to be careful with the rubber filler neck not to put too much pressure on it ..... looks like the bend is about the middle.
If the pipe is the correct dia then you may be able to heat and take some of the angle out.
Yeah good call, I think the bend is a little high, its from an early bay bus I believe. I reckon with a bit of wrangling it should do the job! Thanks for al your help.
