I desperately need the fuel filler neck ( the metal segment from the fuel cap to the rubber fuel hose). I can't fill up fuel and the smell of gas is very strong. The whole piece is rotten out. I'm unable to drive it.

PLs help
Thx

Problem solved, able to fabricate the pipe and use JB weld to seal the neck.

I've honestly never even looked at a sprints filler neck can't pump my own gas in Oregon if a 87 sprint 2 door neck would be the same I may be able to help you out. Anyone know if the same neck was used from 86-88? :huh:

92 convert, if we can sort out whether an 87-88 one is the same, I have an 88 here for parts and could check it and see if you would like it, I'm in Ab so could get you rolling pretty fast if 88 one will work

I took a look on 2 door 91 Chev sprint, the pipe from the neck to the 90 curve is much longer then that of 4 door ( about 4'' longer), it might touch the leaf springs if I install it. I believe it"s not interchangeable. I only temporary fix it for now and still looking for a good rust free one.
Thx for taking your time to replies.

89+ will be different for sure. Is yours a 4dr or 2dr? I have a 1988 4dr parts car.

Sorry for not mentioning the body style, I'm illiterate on computer, have to ask someone to type for me. It"s a 4 door 86 Chev sprint plus swapped from na motor to turbo.
If you could help me out it would be great. Right now I'm unemployed so I can drive up to your place.
Thx Codyb76

I am busy this weekend, last race of the season for my oval track swift gt. I will get a look at that donor car as soon as I can and make sure that pipe is ok on it, if it is I'll pull it off for you and we can make arrangements to meet up,or send it your way.

Thx a lot Mister

Like I said it's a temporary fix for now but when the real Winter hits us, I'll have a big problem. The small evaporation pipe connected to the fuel filler neck pipe is rusted and cracked at the joint so the strong fuel odor is still there and I'm afraid that water will eventually enter into the fuel system. :x
Will wait patiently for your answers.
Thx again
