Petrol tank connector

Post by Grosbard »

Hi all!
I'm planning to replace my fuel hose with something more modern that will work with E10 fuel (I'm located in California, and non-E10 fuel is extremely hard to find here). I've got everything picked out already, and in case anyone is interested, I'm going with Earl's Vapor Guard 5/16" hose for much of it...except for using Earl's Easy Form 5/16" hardline for the long stretch that goes thru the chassis.

My question is, what connector is on the bottom of the fuel tank? I know the original was a threaded compression fitting, but I don't know the thread size or anything like that. Basically I'm wondering what I should purchase to connect to the connector on the bottom of the fuel tank. Any advice is much appreciated!! Thanks!
