Default Re: Felt In-Frame Fuel Cap Solutions?!?

for my copper tank i bought 2 plumbing fixtures from ACE hardware.

one was a double threaded piece i soldered in for the bung, and the other was a threaded nut with a hole in the center. i grinded the nut edges off so it's round, and plugged the hole with a set screw i had laying around.

the problem i have is it doesn't vent. i have to unscrew it while i'm riding or it'll vapor lock.

i think i can solve that with a tiny hole and a gasket or something.

the inside diameter is only an inch, though, so i have to use a funnel.
