poor mans filler flange straightening tool

Postby brewzalot » Sat Aug 08, 2015 8:09 pm

My gas tank filler flange wasn't terrible but did need some straightening. I came up with this idea to tweak it, very similar to the expensive IH tool. But can be made by anyone with a welder and some scrap steel. The only trick is getting the right radius on the 2 welded on tabs, I used a pc. of 1/8" wall pipe that was very close to the size and hammered them to shape before welding. You do have to move it around the rim a few times to get it all. This worked out pretty good and didn't cost much.

Move up into position and pull-hold upward

Put on top plate, washer, and spin a 3rd nut down snug. Tighten with wrench until it stops- loosen, reposition, and repeat.

It's there now. Thanks for the tip.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
