How do you stop the burp when the tank is full on a '55 Chevy?

If I understand your problem correctly I'd suggest running the pump a little slower so air can escape. A fast fill up traps air and it eventually has to go somewhere. When I had my 55s and 56s I could pack another gallon in after a minute or two if I fast filled it trapping air in the tank. Even my late model truck is that way. Packed a gallon and half in it yesterday after the handle clicked off since I had the handle set to fill up fast.
....take it slow and easy.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hubcap than ride in a Ferd.

This is what works for me ! Say the tank is half full ,8 gallons I put in 7 gallons at normal speed and then very slowly until
the pump shuts off. Do not try to top off. I also listen to hear as it starts up the fill tube. hood
