I have a 73 coupe. Trying to install a new gas tank. Found another item lost by body shop. I am looking for the top of the gas tank fuel separator cap that fits on the gas tank at the top and then has a line sending the vapors up to the front of engine bay to the Ford blue Vapor Canister. I will post photo. Thanks so much. :( Kat.

For what it's worth and a little unrelated.... for those who don't vent back to the front like myself, I bought myself a Newton TPV8 valve.

It just connects to the part above (pictured) just where the rubber tube connects to the hard line behind the tank.

Easily accessible from under the car.

This valve will open up at a certain pressure to let air in the tank, eg, when fuel is being used up, a partial vac is being created, or just when the fuel tank is cooling from a hot trip outside.

It also does the opposite. It will let air out when pressure builds up due to the fuel expanding on a hot day.

So, in my case, it's just a set and forget job...

:D Found a unit thanks to this site. Junk yards are very hard to find for parts. Thanks for the help!
