source for 1974 'z' shaped fuel filler vent hose?

I'm trying to find the 1974 Fuel filler Vent hose, I replaced all the others, but haven't found this Z shaped hose yet. Mine is original and drippy at fillups. I have the main fill hose replaced and retained the metal clamping peices that join the two, just need the shaped hose or a source of fuel resistant hose in that size (is it 1" ID?) that is flexible enough to work.

Thanks

I used one for a 76 and up. I went to tractor supply and got a spring that for closing a screen door or gate and slipped it inside the hose so when I bent it to hook it up it would not collapse. It was not easy putting it on but I managed.
It's been on the jeep for 4 months and no problems.

thanks, that is a possible solution! Yes those new hoses are very difficult to get on, even the big filler hose was a battle on the tank neck.

the vent line that attaches TO that hose is what I am looking for, my original is shot, and part seems NLA. Looking to try and find suitable replacements or use the spring in hose method above. Hopeing someone had ID on hand, I have to burn some gas down to take mine off...Still dripping. GRRRRRRRRR

EDIT:

I found this hose type, I am going to try and match ID and source the size needed, stuff has wire already in it, might be the off the shelf fix for this for 70-75s
