    Anyone have trouble putting fuel in there 67 gtx ? I no sooner start putting fuel in & it spits it back out. When I put fuel in out of a gas can (slowly) I can hear it gurgling. Is it not vented right ? I put every thing back on right.

    Yes they are a little tricky to fill.
    They just don't vent real well.
    My 66 Plymouth creates enough backpressure at the pump to kick it out real easily.
    I have to play with the angle of the nozzle and how far I squeeze the trigger.

      I put mine in by hand (no set and wait for it to kick off). Lousy design, to many bends. If you have some 1/4" cable maybe feed it up vent pipe from under car, never tried it.

      My brother in law had an issue with a very different vehicle, but it was really dense spiderwebs plugging the vent tube. Maybe run a pipe cleaner down the vent just in case. My 67 Charger vents like an absolute champ, so possibly you have mechanical interference. Especially if it’s been in storage.

      The car has had a full resto. MY dad had 2 67 GTXs & they both had the same problem. Must be the nature of the beast lol

        It is the nature of the beast. I am on my third '67 Belvedere and my dad just sold his '66. They all had/have the same issue.

          I was soaked with gas by An AMC gremlin once I learned to stand to the side when I filled them

          Only thing I found that helps is to angle the nozzle towards the back of the vehicle this allows you to insert the nozzle further.
          sounds kinky I know, :)

            Can you imagine running one of these cars as a daily driver back in the day...it's not like they get bad mileage or anything.:rolleyes:

            66-67 Dodge B-bodies are totally different filler tube and vent.

            I think the fuel pumps of the days gone by ran at a lower pressure, and delivery was much more calm. These days the pumps are high pressure and fast flow...hence vent piping on older cars cannot keep pace with delivery.

            At least that is my observation and experience. Certain gas stations around these parts are faster than others. Even with a fancy new tank with a larger filler tube, and 3/8" vent tube, I still get some blow-back with the A100. Not often...but occasionally. :)

              Back in the day they used a larger nozzle. They worked ok. When they went to the unleaded gas the nozzle became smaller and was a lot more sensitive when useing in the older filler tubes. Sometimes they won't even detect when they are full. Some were so sensitive you had a hard time getting the gas flowing. Thank you EPA!

                Sounds like he was use to it and never said anything?

                I wonder if you can vent it another way if that might help.

                I had a 71 Dart with the same issue.
                After I sold it I discovered the stock tank was actually a tank within a tank.

                I forget the reason, but you'd fill up the upper tank faster than it would drain to the lower section, and also trap air, causing a full effect.

                Yes, it also had the ridiculous number of vent tubes at the filler neck, and the one that went all the way to the engine bay.
