    '88 K75C fuel pump vent hose

    hose2.jpgpump mesh2.jpgdirtypump2.jpg

    I've been rehabbing my tank innards and have had a difficult time determining exactly how the vent line to the pump screen is routed. I'm pretty sure I've identified the nipple on the tank's ceiling the hose connects, but couldn't find how the hose from the pump would get through the tight fit of the pump in its mounting. I see an opening on the upper left, a cut out in the opening that I believe the hose goes through.

    Could you confirm that the hose I fitted here is the correct routing? I can't see any other way. I'm assuming the screen nipple would be under this opening when fitted.

    Additionally, I pulled my pump and the previous owner had fitted what looks like tent screen over the end secured with stainless steel wire and covered the vent tube in the process. I have a new finer mesh oem screen next to it.

    The rubber damper is is good condition, but the plastic mounting plate is warped and one clip won't retract completely, so I'm replacing it.

    Thanks guys!

    That is the correct routing.

    Thanks Lee! If I ever have to do this again, I'll at least have this mastered.

    Here's a photo after I cleaned the components. I'm ordering 5 new 5mm lock nuts as some were rusted. Hat washers were in good condition after I steel wooled them lightly.
