Default Fuel Tank Connector - What is it?

Hi - I'm in the middle of trying to install the right hand side fuel tank on my '83 XJ6. I noticed that I am missing a male connector to one of the valves (vent?). I have attached some pictures of my left hand side fuel tank along with the connector I am looking for. Anyone know what that part is called so I can try to find it? Thanks!

The parts catalog simply calls it a "fuel pipe", part number CAC2439


Cheers

Thanks Doug! I did some searching and can't seem to find anyone or website selling it. Do you know where I can order an obscure part like that?

You could try a Jag dealer on the odd chance that they can still order a new one from Jaguar.

Best and least expensive bet, though, would be a used one. Try David at Everyday XJ. Great guy

The other way is to get one made up by a suitable supplier. The pipe is a standard size, (probably 5/16" but measure it), and the nut is a standard brass pipe nut. Lots of fuel and other systems will use the same components. Jaguar always shopped for this stuff in the market place, there is nothing unique or odd about it.
