I just had my gas tank totally cleaned and coated, somehow the outlet tube got bent and when they tried to straighten it, it broke. I am now being told that the gas outlet tube has a totally different thread with a rounded edge and no one seems to know how to remake it.
I been to dealers, garages, hydraulic hose makers, machined shops, no one ever saw a connection like this.

There is a bolt welded right on to the tank, this piece is where the outlet screw need screwed into it. Do you have any idea what can be done with this broken piece. The sleeve with the treads can be used over but no one knows what kind of flare end it has.?

Would 57 or 58 Mopar Plymouth or Dodge have a similar setup I could use?

the tube has no threads, its the fitting and you can reuse your old one. you only need a new tube and a flaring tool.

and i would kick those guys **** it doesn't look like the damage was an accident. they cut it. and the only way to straighten it is from the inside and there are no signs that that has been tried and the chances it breaks when you try to straighten is from the inside with heat are zero.
