[T2] Gas fumes

On my bus (a 73 panel) there is an overflow drain in the gas filler pipe that will leak if I fill the tank too high.  Not easy to replace, so I haven't.  But I completely agree with checking the system from start to finish.  I preemptively replace the gas lines every couple of years.  Last time the line from the tank broke when I touched it leaving me pinching the line and hoping somebody would come to hand me a clamp :)

>>> I replaced the 1800 engine on my 74 bus over the winter.  Had someone smarter than I am overhaul the carbureters.  All is tight - no visible leaks but when I put it in the garage after a drive, there is a big time gas smell throughout the garage and you can smell it in the house.
