gas tank problems

Just recently purchased a 78 cj5. Dropped the tank to clean and I noticed to smaller lines coming off the driver side. I know these are vent and are suppose to go to the check valve and canister. Problem is all of that is gone. Question is I don't want to put all that back in. What other options do I have? Thanks for any help.

I'd be interested in an answer to this one as well. When I dropped the tank in mine, those two lines were connected to a AMC V8 fuel filter with the "In" side of the filter connected to the canister.

I ran a line from one to the other.. otherwise you can spend time trying to find parts.

Thanks very much. You haven't had any issues with having no vent.

You need a vent. Most people would use a vented gas cap. Then you can cap the vapor lines, or tie them together as suggested.
