    69 Coronet, is the ONLY way to replace the Filler neck grommet to lower or drop the tank? Tried oil on the tube, just wrong angle... Grrrrr!!!

    Thanks in advance!

      Mine seems a little more difficult to get the FILLER neck back into. I can get the grommet in fine. Seems on a Coronet, I cannot get enough ANGLE to get the filler back in..
      Thanks!!!

                Seems, like (where paint is chipped?) Is stopping me from getting a straight in angle.
                I know its gonna be a snug fit, unlike the rotten leaky trash that came out. Maybe try soap? I tried motor oil, not much help there. Maybe put filler neck in freezer overnight?
                Does appear MY tank has a little bit of an angle to the rear of it.

                  I hope you are using a new grommet @WM23M9 - the one shown above is cracked, and more than likely all dried up.

                  It's funny that this same part is sealing up my my tank on a 66-300 for the last 20+ years, but yet it's not mentioned. And nobody can answer why it fits and works? Good Luck

                    I replaced the tank on my 67 Coronet. Could not get the tube in with a new grommet. Finally had to use the old one, went right in.
