Thank you, all who replied. It did dawn on me eventually that what I had
wasn't original. The car had come to me with a Triumph Spitfire gas tank,
and a bigt of fudging about had been done. When I cut the hose down,
(thanks, Alex, for the picture), there was room to squirrel the assembly
together under the body shell.
Question: Moss doesn't show that seal that seats the gas cap itself. Looks
almost like an asbestos type material that fits in the groove directly
beneath the cap. Has anyone replaced this? Any favorite solution?
