99 TJ Fuel System Question

Trying to replace the gas tank skid on my 99 TJ since mine is a rusty mess. Followed all the directions online but when I dropped the tank I found that the plastic tee attached in the picture below had broken off where it heads back towards the front of the Jeep ( to charcoal canister?).

The two rollover valve hoses (from items 6 & 9) attach to the two large barbs and the broken off one goes forward. I've tried my auto parts stores but none of their tees have different dia legs.

Anybody know a part number on this or where I can find one? It's not called out in my service manual and I can't reinstall the tank without it.

Thanks!

Depending on what the diameter of the hose is, you might have some luck looking for a Y fitting for windshield washers. I know in some heavy duty truck applications the universal pumps come with a Y that looks very similar. Just a suggestion

You should be able to get a vacume T at any auto parts store.

depending on how diverse the sizes are from the sides to the return line you can try getting a standard T fitting and a short piece of hose to bridge from the T to a reducer to the forward line.

Here is the list of available dealer parts

Yep, any auto parts store. Even my local Autozone has vacuum T's in the "Help" section.

I did the same thing when I dropped my tank. All I did was find a T fitting at my local auto parts store.
