Hi there quick question-- has anyone got some advice on replacing my fuel filler hose which is split.
The hose on my 1600 is one piece from the tank to the angled section at the filler point.
The filler point section is available at a few places but not the other section which is about 400 mm long, its 2 1/4 inch I D or 57 mm.
I guess I will have to get a few metal joiners to suit also .
Cheers.

Sounds like you have a early model 1600 which has the rubber going from tank to filler. Might be worth getting your hands on a late model metal pipe, then buying the new aftermarket hoses to connect it together.

You can also purchase fuel rated Silicone for straight bits.

Yep, early model set up ,1970 thanks for your input,
Can get the fill point section from Muscle Cars, about $54, the 57 mm ID straight fuel hose, about 450 mm long if I get without a metal section, I have just found available at Industrial Hoses, (about $100 for 2 ft) or Bursons a Macay hose $120 for 1 mtr..Then there is the 17 mm breather hose which tees of it at the fill point section. Starts to add up eh, I guess all up with a metal joiner this filler set up will be about $200. Restoration gets expensive don't it.
The silicone hose you mentioned could be the goer,with some metal section.
Cheers

I also had an early model rubber one which was due for replacement.

I recently bought this for $240

It all adds up, saves the hassle chasing all the individual parts, won't be much more expensive in the end and it's all fresh as :D

That Maddat one is great value! Does it suit Unleaded fuel filler? If yes, I think I know what I'm getting for Christmas.
