Lee -

My OEM gastank had rusted out of existence, so I'd replaced the tank, hoses, and fill. I have my old OEM fill/cap I'd be willing to part with.

Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that the OEM was a 2" not a 1.5" id hose; which is why I replaced the neck - my new tank needed the smaller hose.

The replacement was a generic stainless gas fill from overton's or iboats.com
