Fuel filler/cap difference?

I am in the middle of a rebuild and I was able to get a new 2008 tub for my 1983 110. My original tub has the older Series III locking fuel cap and filler but the newer tub is for a diesel with a smaller hole in the tub for the filler. I was going to enlarge the hole to fit the older filler but now thinking about buying the newer style filler. I noticed that my older fuel cap has 2 small vent holes in it--I assume this is necessary for the lower fuel-pressure carb system vs the newer fuel injection system? Is this necessary? Anyone know if the newer caps has/need vent holes? Thanks in advance.

Actually it will be tomorrow night before I can look at the diesel. But Ren Ching has already stated that he thinks your best move is to match the filler to the tank, which unless you have changed tanks would be to keep your existing one and just cut the hole bigger. If you have changed over to a td5 tank or something then go with the right filler for that.

Thanks, I was thinking the same. I did get a new tank but it is a direct replacement, not a td5 tank. I want to keep the 110 old-school with the older style locking cap. Now to figure out how to enlarge the hole in the tub without completely messing it up. Thanks Charles.

Mud, I would use a dremel tool for that. Make a pattern from the old one and use it to mark the new hole.
