Fuel Tank Breather valve

Did a search and came up with nothing. I have a wanted thread about one of these too in the wanted forum

Basically I'm wondering a couple of things.
First, if someone can provide me with a description about how the breather system on a d-90 fuel tank works.

Second, do I really need both breathers to be there, or can I get by with just the one? The reason I ask is that I need one of these and nobody has one! I really want to get the truck back together and driveable soon. Any help is appreciated.

I can't say whether you need both breathers, but the system basically works through the little valve body in the fender well and the cabon canister behind the passenger headlight. The valve body is actually a pretty simple molded part which I think does nothing more than ensure expanded liquid is not allowed to reach the carbon canister. The carbon cansister adsorbs fuel vapor which is sucked into the engine I assume by the intake vacuum.

Is there any chance you can improvise the plug? We're just dealing with a hole, a gasket, and a tube stub...

Yeah, I may try to improvise here because nobody has one of those little guys in stock. I think some Disco I's have the same part on top of their fuel tank so I might see if I can find one at a junk yard or something.
I'll post a pic of it up sometime soon. Thanks for the info.
