This Saturday might be the last nice day for awhile.
Is anyone going to be on the river or a lake in the area?
Kelly & I would like to go out but I need help on the ramp.
Please post...!

Hello, all! Had a couple of hours before dark, so I put in on South Lindstrom and had about an hour of wide open 2-stroke therapy. The fall colors are getting spectacular! Itís going to be hard to wait all winter for more, so you might just see me out as late as possible this fall! Hope everyone is well!

There are a fair number of outlets for a gas cap leash, this is what I commonly used.  I've also drilled and riveted a chain on at the bottom, the fuel hose slips over the area to prevent any leaks.

It does have the screw holes to put a chain on it, I think I took the chain for a different cap
I will send you an email

J,
They look very similar. If the pipe allows a 1-1/2" fuel diameter hose on it to make it a simple connection i think I can use it. i can always get a new cap for it if that cap goes. I have seen lots of replacement caps. Do you want to email me direct and I can send you my address?. I can post it here also. I have a fedex account and i think a ups also. Or we can do what ever is convenient for you. I dont want you to go to far out of your way to send it.

Ahh I get it. I think so. I hate drilling the deck for more holes. Or dry heat makes everything so brittle. I can give you a shipping number and work it out with you. Let me measure the opening on the deck. I know the original filler flange/surround was around 3-1/4" diameter on the deck might be even smaller to accept this flange.  It took a 1-1/2" inside diameter flexible fuel hose below deck to the tank. The shaft was about 3" long below the deck. The only difference I see in your pic is the cobalt one has the the threads on a enlarged ring outside the shaft (the original glastron fuel filler had the threads directly on the 3" shaft). As long as this fits thru the opening and locks up the housing I would think this is fine. I will measure it tonight.
thanks

I salvaged it off of an old cobalt that I scrapped out. If you want it I can mail it to you

Thanks for the answers. I am guessing the 1974 doesn't have come with the shut off. Unless there is a safety issue I wasn't planning on adding it. that 90 degree nozzle must just be just a fuel nozzle for the change of direction. I  will retest the float thanks for those ideas. Need the filler to complete the install. On the fuel filler based on the 1-1/2" inside diameter and 3" threaded shaft I found quite a lot of these fillers that match the pics you guys sent me.

https://www.google.com/search?q=boat+deck+fuel+filler&rlz=1C1ZCEB_enUS805US805&oq=boat+deck+fuel+filler&aqs=chrome..69i57j0j69i61l3.4079j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

I guess I will have to go with the ones with 3 - #10 screws on them.I will have make the holes in the deck. I was trying to avoid new openings. I know i have asked you guys for any deck mounted ones you may have come across.  I haven't found any that are only fastened from below(except aircraft models)  like my 1974 fuel filler with the threaded rod and nut. Its same pic from 2 weeks ago that shows no deck fasteners. If i dont find one by tonight i will just order the screwed in ones. I am guessing you guys have used a special bit to not crack the fiberglass when trying to drill thru the deck or hull?
thanks
