- Thanks... And ya it probably was a pin hole.... But got her finished up today.. About 2 1/2 hours labor total. Took a little longer cuz I had to grind off a busted bolt but the job is done. Now I did get an oem filler neck but it was slightly bigger so I had to remove one big bracket where the hose clamp connects to the rubber, but perfect fit. My gas cap is much tighter now as well.
hey glad it went well.. and ya rust can definitely require the grinder off of a bolt! so the oem had a bracket on the hose that you had to remove? Interesting.. I see it on the parts diagram number 77276.. but what's odd there's also another hose without that bracket number 77201A.. Looks like a production run change, so you didn't do anything bad by getting rid of what you didn't need! perfect!
ahh.. so the gas cap was not as tight before? Yup sounds like it was showing ya there it was failing. I've always found that once something is fixed THEN you get to know how it was supposed to be.. Cool.. I looked at your profile, Illinois, yup that makes sense of the rust. Toyota does a good job with rust compared to Honda with my project civic. But after almost 15 years if this is the only rust stuff that caused a problem, doing well!
I bet now when you go to fill up you'll hear that WHOOSH from the gas cap now! I had to replace the filler neck and tank on the project civic car I'm working on. It had holes in the tank actually! No escaping gas sound! Once fixed it's so strong the escaping vapors cause the cap to rattle slightly! Ya I remember not to undo it all the way!
