YJ Fuel Tank Removal Problem

I dropped my fuel tank and broke a part. Not sure what the part is, I cant see where or if it even attaches to the fuel tank. All hoses were intacked and electrical connections. The part in question is connected to a line that runs with the fuel supply and return. It is smaller and a more flexible hose connected to a white plastic and black rubber part that looks like an inline fuel filter. The hose runs through the metal loop on the top of the tank back over to the right rear side of the tank. Can anyone tell me what this part was attached to and what it is called before I remount my tank?

Is it a vacuum line?

It goes under the right rear quarter panel. Remove (or just pull it back) your flap underneath the right rear and look up there. that is where it goes.

I will check, what does it go to? Can I just tie it back up and leave it or does it return fuel or something like that?

I think it is something like a rollover check valve, vent tube. Something along those lines

Yes its your rollover valve / vent tube. Like mentioned before it runs from your passenger side of the tank up under the pass. side rear qtr panel. Then runs back over the fuel tank and to the engine comparment to the charcoal canister. Mine was pretty much gone so I replaced it and ran it down the passenger side to the canister, used metal tube near the cat. other then that used fuel line the rest of the way. Hope this helps.
