If you are experiencing a lot of gas fumes in your 240Z after filling up your tank, this little connector joint could be at least one source of the fumes if it has developed cracks from age and road vibration. Replacing a crack tube with a non cracked one can stop fumes from at least coming from this are of your car. See my ZP Blog Tech write-up Crack Vapor Tube Connector for more info.
This small, nearly undetectable, nylon plastic tube joins an integrated plastic rubber opening coming out of upper filler tube to an aprox. 12″ long rubber hose leading to a nipple on the early Series One plastic evaporation tanks. The end of the rubber hose is pressed so tightly together that often this plastic tube’s condition can not be seen.
Nissan parts catalog list an evolution of 4 numbers (below) for this small, essential part, but to my experience there is only one design of this nylon plastic connector tube. If someone knows better, please take the time to inform me.
