fuel tank diagram

Anyone have a diagram of the fuel tank, I had some work done on the bed of the truck now I see a small line, 1/4", looks like a vacuum line, just hanging there by the rear wheel. It has a plastic fitting on the end like another line plugs into it. If it's no big deal I'm just going to fix it myself. Any help would be appreciated.

Kevin

Do yourself a favor and get a service manual. Here is a link for the CD from Geno's. It will pay off, big time, over a period of time.

Most times the vent is just cable tied to the big fill up hose.
No need to take off the bed for it.
In fact stock they don't come with a vent hose, just a barbed stub on top of the tank module.
Someone added the vent hose you have later.
Good idea if you're in a lot of mud.

The line I'm talking about starts on top of the tank, (tank module) the length looks as if it would go to the filler neck somewhere but there isn't a fitting or another hose to plug into. This line in question is what came with the truck as I'm the original owner, no one else has touched this truck. If the manual has a diagram I'll just buy the manual, now it's just bugging the out of me where it's suppose to go.

I just ordered the manual, hopefully it will have a diagram or a clue to where the line goes. It will come in handy anyways. I wanted to buy the manual when I bought the truck, but it's one of those things where nothing needed fixing where I needed the manual.

Someone added the hose, they didn't come with one. Perhaps the dealer?
You won't find it in the service manual.
In fact the trucks were new they were delivered to the dealer with the barbed fitting on the module capped off. Dealer was supposed to remove the cap.
Some dealers spaced out removing the cap, people had problems even going as far as collapsing the tank.
My bet is the dealer added the hose when they removed the cap.
The hose doesn't connect to anything on one end, just need to get the end up where it won't be in water and grime.
Like I said, most people just cable tie them to the large fill hose.

This is from the front of the tank.

Top left hose is the one in question.

Top left again.

This is the hose with the end on it.

I don't know when the dealer would have put a hose on it, unless they did it before I bought it from them. Like I said I'm the original owner and it's only had the recalls done on it. I wonder if it has something to do with it being a California truck?
