Gas tank overfilling and fumes...anybody else?

Anybody else have a problem with your gas tank overfilling then draining out the overflow?  I've done the service bulletin with relocating the vent and drilling the hole in the top.Every so often when I fill the tank it seems to overfill before the pump shuts off.  Like today, the pump shut off and there was no fuel running out the vent.  Drove a mile or two down the road and parked on the street with one side a but lower on the curb side and fuel is running out the vent.Also the garage smells…See More

Tosh Dickenson replied to Michael Chomout's discussion Compression test

Tosh Dickenson replied to Michael Chomout's discussion Compression test
"Put a squirt of oil (about a teaspoon) in the low cylinders and rerun the test.  If the compression boosts then the rings or cylinder walls have leakage.  If no boosts then likely a valvetrain issue and you can move to the next tests."

Oil filler cap discharge

Hello all,I've noticed some oil droplets that appear to be coming from the oil filler cap on my '64 Deville.  It's not a California car so it's just the cap with the wire mesh breather...no hose connections on it.PCV valve is new and the breather tube is clean...redid all that not too long ago.  No other engine oil leaks to speak of.I suspect it's been happening a while but the ac compressor had been slinging oil everywhere until I got it fixed.I recall seeing a post somewhere about someone…See More

Tosh,congrats on the Caddy. There is a lot of help out there. Ruby is now in Buckeye,AZ. We winter here and 5/W up in the NW.  I should have been able to find more time by now, but the list on what to do next is still long. "She" just left Eugene late last year.
