I TOOK PICS OF A FILLER TUBE OUT OF A DODGE TRUCK (I THINK)

I GRABBED THIS UP IN A SALVAGE YARD SO I COULD MODIFY THE FUEL TANK ON "WILLY", MY '46 WILLY JEEP

NOTE THE "CHECK BALL" IN THE OPEN POSITION AND CLOSED

IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO STICK SOMETHING IN THERE AND SORTA BUMP IT LOOSE (IF IT IS STUCK UP)

IF YOU HIT IT TOO HARD---YOU MAY KNOCK IT COMPLETELY OUT---IT IS HELD FROM FALLING INTO THE TANK BY LITTLE PLASTIC FINGERS---BE GENTLE. OR REMOVE THE WHOLE ASSEMBLY TO REPLACE IT OR MAYBE REMOVE TRASH/ OTHER THAT MAY BE WEDGING IT UP
