OK, just pulled my vent caps and I DID DRILL ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND JUST EPOXIED THE TOP SO THE TUBE WOULD SLIDE WHEN OPENED AND CLOSED.

So what's the final verdict on vents? Just top only, or all the way through?
Anybody have some that are working well with just drilling through the top?

you definitely need to drill all the way thru.  I drilled one hole thru the top to fit the vent tubing and two smaller 1/8' holes thru the bottom.  I also didn't want the holes in line with each other to prevent more of a possiblity of the fuel splashing up thru bottom hole and out the vent tube.

Fuel caps

Postby Roger » Thu Aug 21, 2008 1:14 pm

Like some of the others, I also drilled a 1/4" hole through both sides of the fuel caps, then I talked to Troy's dad who works at Just, and he said to drill a 1/4" hole in the top, and a 1/8" hole in the bottom. I used the Hysol epoxy to heal up the bottom side then drilled the 1/8" hole through that. Haven't used it yet, as I'm still working on the engine and instrument panel.
