Some of the plastic tanks have a little lip on the inside edge of the fill spout that you need to trim so the newer floats will fit. Just be careful so the trimmings don't fall into the gas tanks.

I stuffed a rag in the fill spout and with a very sharp knife cut the inside edge with about a 45 degree taper.

I have had to do this on 2 tanks so far and the new gas gauge/cap work just fine.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
