Got under my 46 today. The outlet of the gas tank has about a 4 inch piece of clear plastic tubing and then connected to the steel gas line. Is there some kind of flex hose used there?

I don't know if the 46s were the same but my '53 has a nipple coming out of the tank and a brass shut off valve there before going into the metal line. I'm not sure that mine has the flex line on it. I'd have to get under and see. The one pictured below is available on eBay.

The hose looks like it is about the correct length. Mine has the valve, but not the long nipple. Think I should be able to make something up from gas line that will work.

Mine is like the picture on my 53. I believe my nipple is brass. I believe I got it from chevy of the 40's.

Looks like I found the hose available from Jim Carter. Not cheap. Have to get under the truck again and look at the ends before I order it.
