Fuel Sending Unit (Part Problem)

I have a 1991 Wrangler that had been sitting for a while because It was mis-diagnosed.. Anyways I just recently got back from Afghanistan and I want my baby fixed so I can get dirty again. So it came to be that my fuel pump was in terrible shape so I am in the middle of replacing it.. Here is the problem, I need a little black piece that attaches to a little pipe on the end to keep the line from draining when the engine is turned off, it may be called a "stopper". It turned to mush on account of sitting so long without use, I am assuming this. I need help finding one because I have had no luck. I would appreciate anything that turns up. Thanks.

Think that is the return line. Stopper just directs the fuel to bottom of tank to keep air bubbles and such from straying all over. it should set in a little cup. I have used a piece of hose to direct it in there.
