Question NAS Fuel tank breather part?

So pulled my NAS tank to rebuild the fuel pump. Had the tank all back together and ready to go in, then had a non-car-related incident that lead to the breaking of nipple on the breather part (circled on the attached).

Something tells me this is unobtainium, and I can't even find a part number for it. Any idea where to source one of these, what it's actually called, or a part number?

Here's what the grommet looks like that holds it in place:
http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/NTC5879G.cfm
http://www.lrseries.com/shop/product...20VALVE&page=1

Seems to be referred to as either the "breather pipe" or "cut off valve". Still having trouble locating a part number for this sucker though.

Will check with them.

Define "not cheap" ? Any chance you've got one you want to part with?

Looks like it *may* be part NTC4517 (just FYI).

Can you epoxy a sleeve inside the hole and then fit a smaller piece of tubing? McMaster has a 1 foot length of either 3/16 or 1/4 aluminum tubing for about 1.50.

Ok sounds good keep me posted, I just need the one on the filler hose side (not sure if the the valves perform different jobs).

They are expensive if you buy them with the breather hoses but you can also buy them separate for cheap.

I just sold one for $500,000, but for you I will give a deal.

I vote you go the epoxy route.

Plan B has to be working through the parts books for a generic Domestic equivalent.

It looks like Barry is hooking a brother up, but for those that may have issues going forward any additional info on the aftermarket one referenced above?

Or, just keep your kids & dogs out of the garage so they don't run over the tank chasing each other and bust the fuel cutoff valve .
