Replace it...
I normally get from 5 to 15 years (the originals seem to last a bit better than the replacements) from these hoses. I just replaced both on my 85 for around $25.

Enjoy!

...a well prepped, well driven, vehicle should do well in any terrain, including the highway.

Carburetors became obsolete during the last century... do what ever it takes to get fuel injection...It makes bigger grins off road.

If it were only that easy. The '76 and '77 filler hoses are next to impossible to find.

i tried that option 2x only to get one that is shaped like mine but is about 4 inches to short. so i was wondering if i could just put something around it for right now and just chance it till its day comes.

i had alot of trouble trying to find the Z shaped vent hose, as mine had some cracking near the ends. after not finding one, I wrapped the ends on the outside with tommy tape, a 'waterproof' rubberized electrical type tape. I hated to have to do it, but it actually worked!

I bought one of the last one from 4WD and it was 4" to Long. My tank has a longer neck on it. I couldn't get the vapor fitting off my old one so I don't remember if I ever used it.

Are you waiting for someone to suggest JB Weld? Because that would work for what your asking.

you trying to kill him!!!

you may need to go to an exhaust shop and get them to bend up a piece of exhaust tubing to the shape of the hose and use short sections to join it together.

Just out of curiosity, why are you dicking around with a mickey mouse band-aid fix instead of properly fixing a potentially dangerous problem? Any auto parts store can sell you fuel grade hose to length...just bring in your old rotten one and they will match up the inner diameter to a length of new hose...costs about $5 per foot...
