Forgot all about the filler neck. Mine had to be dropped and reinstalled at an angle as well
But what is 640 pounds of fuel and 80 pounds of tank for a guy with big jacks.
Al, it seems that the 80 gal fuel tank was an aftermarket addition. The 79's came with a 50 gal fuel tank. There was a sticker of the manufacturer, but it is in a location that I hope to never see again.

yes the label was not where you could see it. id like to forget i have seen it. and hope not to see it again.
called a couple of airstream mechanics and told them what was happening with the fuel lines and i wasnt saying anything that they didnt already know. seems the lines are a bear to get in just the right spot. they have the same problems.
to put the filler hose on you feed it thru the frame rail and attach with the tank raised at a angle . then you can jack the tank into position. it is not very difficult after you get the jack in the right position. and the tank is empty. most folks dont think gas weight a lot 24x8=192 lbs plus the tank is close to 100 . that can wear an old man out. quick . lol

To heck with the jacks, I am glad I have a saddle mount tank. Straight up and down, just cut the hoses a foot too long and thread them through the frame rail. The filler hose is a little nasty, but just because it is so stiff. But then I will look like a rear ended Pinto if I ever get hit in the right side.

going to take a picture and post of the label on the gas tank. i just posted at another thread about the tank not being gm . napa has a guage and sensor that could be installed to replace the 90 ohm sensor . also a boat supply has a sensor but not 90 ohm. i plan to talk to the farm tracktor places and see if the might have something . the omish work at jackson center and they may hay gone to the tractor supply for parts.
it is in a farm area.

well all is done got one small glitch. the over flow hose is damaged it driped a little, repositioned and got it stopped . i have 60 gal s of gas in the beast. the tank will hold 60 gals after all. . i think i will ty wrap it to the filler hose so it dont drip . after i burn couple gals it wont drip any way. going to take a trip labor day and watch the gas guage and try to come home on fumes.
some one posted once you understand what your doing it is easy.well that is the story. lol
