Just make sure you can get NPT brass tee's.

I think it was Pile that said they were available at the local "FLAPS".

You could try there too.

Didn't the VW Fox use them???

I don't know if these are any good (quality), but the price seems right:

Are you talking about the fuel pressure accumulator from a CIS injected car?

I think I mentioned at some point using the plastic sump recirc tank off later Golfs/cabbies/Fox etc.

I think the nomenclature was "filter" or something equally idiotic for a ~transparent hollow plastic enclosure with a bunch of tubes sticking out..

They turned out to be pretty pricey here in the UK new, around £80 which is about $150??

What about that vent in the corner of the tank, as you look in under the bonet from the front of the car its bottom right, couldn't i just put my return into that??

I use a Bosch pump off a mid-70s VW bus and the fuel filter. The inlet side of the filter is 6mm I think? and 8mm outlet?? It's smaller on the inlet side than the outlet though.
