OBS fuel tank ventilation mod

I've read about this awhile back, and I'm sure there's a million threads on it but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for through Google. My front tank takes forever to fill, I have to hold the handle on the nozzle to the slowest it will go or it will click off from the foam over-flowing. What can I do to fix this? And what's the difference between the front and rear tank? The rear tank flows freely and can set the fuel nozzle to the highest setting and walk away, the front tank can't even be placed on a setting

Re: OBS fuel tank ventilation mod

Unfortunately I'm not very mechanically intelligent, was hoping there was an updated part from Ford that I could get and swap in. Didn't know I would have to go digging through junk yards to find what I was looking for. Thanks any way man!

I used Transfer Flow's filler neck kit, expensive but got the job done in a factory fashion.

Unless you want to spend$400? IIRC on the transfer flow kit, you can either make your own or go to the junk yard

$600 Brad. What I think is happening, as Transfer Flow depletes their stock of the Ford rollover valve their price goes up.
