RESTORING HISTORY ONE CAR AT A TIME

Gasoline Tank

While the outward appearance of the gasoline tank and radiator filler caps are the same the inside construction of the caps is different. The gasoline tank cap has a vent hole drilled in the center of the raised portion (see Fig. 520) which allows air to seep in through the six openings in the cap and prevent a vacuum forming in the tank.

Care must be exercised to see that the caps are not mixed. Should a radiator cap be installed on the gasoline tank it would cause a vacuum to form int he tank and prevent the gasoline flowing to the carburetor.
