Hello Gee,
I need (2) PN808998, Filtered Vent Plugs. The plug goes in the fuel pickup in place of the vent line. Anybody?
Thanks,
Mike

Can you use an axle vent in that location?

I'd be curious as to what it looks like, as it sounds like a fitting with a screen on it.

Just like something a Ford 8N carburator inlet screen would have... Just a thought.

It's cone shape with breather holes n the flat face. It is filled with a horsehair like material. Call Memphis Equipment and give them the ORDNANCE part no.
