In a seperate tab, Google the fitting using Google images.  When you find a useable image. Click on the 'chain' link button, next to the smileys. Copy&paste the url from google images into the url box. Type 'here' in
the title box.
 
Or,

DG - I'm guessing from the previous thread that you might mean one of these? (Though this one is neither white nor plastic!)

OK,  DG has sent me a pic,  and it's one of these;

I've never used them and - whilst admittedly a bit neater than having the fuel tubes dangling around like mine usually do! - I'm slightly puzzled about the thing...
 
It's referred to in the SLEC website, near the bottom of this page, and the description reads,
 
"This is fitted into the fuselage side. It has two vents which are sealed airtight when closed. When the system is un-pressurised one vent will simply be the filler & the other the breather and you would trim of the cap in the door to allow air into the system. With a pressurised system a T Joiner is used. Includes fixing screws."
 
So,  with a non-pressurized setup you need to clip one of the "bungs" so that the vent pipe is open to the air.  (But why bother having the vent pipe connected to the plastic doo-dah?)  And with a pressurized system you need to add a T-piece to connect a line from the pressure pipe to the unit.  (But again, what's the point in connecting the pressure line to the plastic doo-dah?)
 
Has anyone actually used one of these and found any point in connecting two lines to it?

Hi John
Basildon Biggles says you fill your tank through one vent add a t piece to your fuel line back to the other vent to drain the tank

Yeah I have these.  I don't use them.  If you do you only need to use one of the two holes, generally.
You can use one hole to fill.  Then put a 'T' piece in you carb feed pipe and then to the other hole, and use that connection to empty your tank.

Obviously it also depends on tank plumbing aswell, 1 or 2 clunk.  2 line or 3 etc..
