Thanks, Ken. I think your answer about the 2" rubber hose is what I need. Most of my fill tube is metal and I was thinking that I had to replace it with metal. The rubber makes a lot more sense and I can get the gentle sweep needed by using it. I don't think that I'll need to cut the metal fill tube to accomplish that sweep, the way that mine is laid out. I'll take the existing stuff apart and then use your additional information as needed. I understand the problem with the size on the overflow tube.
The kink in my current tube was just incompetent manufacturing, I believe. There is plenty of room and angle to have do it correctly.
I may take a couple of digital photos and post them here before I get too wild with it, just to confirm my direction in the repair.
Thanks again for your information.
