Ed, I hooked up the cannister lines as you suggested. I got a fitting to work under the filter housing. Thanks. But I am still getting a fuel odor, strongest on a full tank.I went to a Zone 1 Concours in Saratoga today and filled up the tank afterwards. A few minutes later, I noticed a wet spot on the ground in front of the front left tire. I looked in the fender well, and saw the bottom of a box there, wet with fuel. I assume it is some sort of overflow from the filler? After driving an hour, the wetness went away, as did the strong fuel odor.Can this 'box' be repaired or will it be necessary to replace? Is this something I should avoid by not filling the tank all the way?Charles
