    Ahh so all those lines are vent lines, whats the rectangle do that they all connect too? I plan on updating my Fuel Tank and the new tank has Inlet,Outlet and Vent, and I have been trying to figure out how i'm going to hook up the vent line. Maybe just put a filter on it, or a one way valve?

    All i can find out is that it's called a SEPARATOR ASM.
    No idea what it does or why its there.

    Plugged the 3 extra holes with vacuum plugs and installed a vented gas cap. Thats the only way to go unless you are trying to stay factory.

    looking at the vent lines could one of these be used for a return line? I am about to install a Holley Sniper fuel injection system.

    bourbon_scotch: With regards to your drawing, you got it right.

    The vent line can be used as a return line, but you need to run the vent line directly into the tank, not through the separator assembly.

    I am curious to know if you did end up using a vent for the fuel return with the sniper install? I am installing as well and I keep looking at those return lines wondering this same thing.
