Fuel inlet size on side of tub

Anyone know if the fuel inlet on the tub side is the same size for an '83 versus '08? I know the hose is a different size. I have the older fuel filler with a locking clasp and a pre-filter screen. Would like to reuse that in my rebuild instead of the newer locking plastic cap filler. Just want to make sure I can fit the older filler into a newer tub. Thanks!

I could go on at length with this having just changed my 90 to a newer style filler. Different than a 110 though. It was kind of a hassle.

My rear tub on the project110 is a Td5, and thus had the same plastic screw-on type cap as the NAS rovers do (held in place with that large rubber ring thing)

I fitted an earlier twist-remove cap unit (so i could use the jerrycan filler tube) and it more-or less fitted in OK. had to drill out the 4 holes for the mounting bolts, but the holes ended up right on the "edge" of the old existing large hole, so i had to use some large-ish washers to hold it in place. Looks perfectly fine though.

Thanks Jim, exactly what I needed to know. When you say "earlier twist-remove cap unit" it looks like this one on my 110 right? Did you have to enlarge the main hole for the filler? Thanks
