fuel tank question

I have just finished restoring an 1983 110. There is a hose that is coming off the front of the fuel tank about 1/3 of the way up the tank that goes back toward the fuel pump and just ends. It is not connected to anything. Does anyone know what this is for and where it is suppose to go. When I filled the truck with fuel the first time it came pouring out of this hose. My mechanic plugged it and now when I drive the truck, fuel is sloshing around the tank and out the fuel cap. Is it a vent line?

Any help would be appreciated

diesel or petrol?

my diesel tank has:

three stubs off the right side. Two at the top rear. One is the large filler, next to it a smaller vent. Both lines go up to the filler fitting. There is also a small stub toward the front that is blocked off.
On top is the bulkhead entry - this has a tube for fuel feed to the motor.
Left side has an entry for the level sending unit. That's all.

nothing on the front side. maybe yours is Ex mod/soem other variant?

I don't see any front entries on any of the tanks until XA vin numbers (emisions connections)
