With the tank all fixed and the paint touched up, time to bolt it in and attach the hoses. I filled the thank up with 2 gallons of gas. I held my breath and flipped the switch. The pump works! But i smell gas so i quickly turn off the pump.

Shit!

I turn on the pump again and try to find out where its coming from.

The damn vent hose. Just like xpdishun said it would. But since i knew where it was coming from i wanted to see how much would really come out....

Well the answer is ALOT!

But there was a ton of gas making it into the tank.

So my new plan is to put a fuel petcock on the vent line, so ill just close it off when im pumping the fuel and leave it open when im riding.

And the finished product. It came out better than i could have hoped!
