By hand, starting with 40 grit emery cloth, I cut the vent pipes off to make it easier then welded them back on once cleaned up, the top flange was beyond repair so welded on a new one, took bloody ages, would have bought a new one if good originals were available.

I think the spare neck I have needs a new top flange,

how did you get the new flange on once you had made it up as surely the hole in the centre for the pipe won't be big enough to slide on from either end of the filler neck?

I think the flange may be too far gone for me to be able to use it as a template, do you know the dimensions of the flange?

The pipe is the same diameter from top to flange, I cut round the flange weld leaving the welded part in place then welded the new piece it. see page 23 of this thread.
For the dimensions if I remember right it is symetrical but fairly simple. Tricky part was getting it rotated to the correct position for the studs/bolts before welding.
