I am not sure if I am posting this in the correct forum section. If it is incorrect then I apologize.
Backstory: Purchased '76 CJ7 (awesome):). Realized the fuel tank had a massive crack around the filler neck that had been "JB Welded" so many times it looked like a colony of gray slugs had moved in. I purchased a new fuel tank from Morris 4x4 (awesome).

When I install the new fuel tank is it necessary to install that little reservoir piece that is somehow integrated in to the fuel system? I am sure that everyone knows what I am talking about, but just in case references are needed, I am searching google for images............. Ok found one.

Just so happened it was on this forum...imagine that??? Is there a way to omit it from the system? :confused:
 
Are you refering to the rollover valve? if so then yes install it. It is part of the vent system and they do work quite well. I did eliminate the check valve though as it does seem to do the same purpose as the rollover valve.

Thank you sir I will indeed...just making sure before I bought extra fuel line.
 
Hook up everything, I left off the two that go to the drivers side out of the top of the tank off by accident, they are vents I think, but gas leaked out, stained my tank after full restoration, could have caused a fire also.

You are correct the two nipples are for the vent system. They go to the rollover valve, check valve, and charcoal cannister.
