Is this a late model filler neck?

I thought this was a late model neck? I'm eliminating the obligatory, brain cell killing fuel vapors. Looks like my fuel filler neck was at least a contributing factor with the nice DIY repair job and cracks galore.

I have a '72tii, but I thought the original necks were the long ones. I guess someone changed the tank at some point.

Anyone know a source of NEW late model filler necks (vs NOS)? The NOS neck I bought from Max last year is already cracking.

Like OP, I, too, am doing a fume elimination project. Bryant

I really doubt Maximillian has kept these on a shelf. They get them from "the usual sources" just like many other suppliers. While "the usual sources" may not always include BMW NA, recently-ordered parts from BMW may not be any better, newer, or "fresher" Installation of one of these with zero tension (perfect alignment) is the best insurance from stress cracks, but nothing can make up for a cheap sludge-composite black material part made in some third world nation (which I'd bet is where ALL suppliers get these now, including BMW)
