    Broke fuel pump breather nipple 2005 RXT

    Well guys I was putting in my front cold air kanaflex and while I was taking out the OEM resonator I broke the fuel pump breather nipple, any body here know a fix or what can be done.
    I know it's not good running it like this due to the vapor's and also is it ok to put the rectifier mounted on the sidewall ?

    Youll have to take the unit back out to do this... BUT you can take and cut off the rest of the nipple,get a 1/8 threaded barbed nipple..take and drill out the rest of the nipple to the size of the threads and screw in the 1/8 inch barbed nipple into the hole,i would use a little silicone around the threads too to help it seal..

    I found a temp fix since it was Saturday night and we were going to the lake Sunday mourning, at autozone I found a nice assortment of vaccum fitting's and was a life saver, in there was a 1/4 to 5/16 that worked perfect..

    mine broke also i took the piece that broke and jb-weld around that area and stuck it back to the piece that broke on the pump.i had a drill bit in the middle so the jb-weld didnt seal up the hole.worked great.
