Default WUR connections

Hello,

I am in the process of removing and cleaning out my WUR (its a Kjet car)

Car is a 1982 Volvo 240 Turbo.

Aside from the fuel lines everything else was pretty loosely fitting and almost fell off!

One of the items that did was the pipe that connects at the top near the electrical socket. It makes a U shape and go downward, but to where I cannot see.

Where should this piece of rubber be connected? And what does it do? Or does it just connect to the top of the unit and remain unconnected to anything else?

It doesn't go anywhere. It's just a vent tube. It's there to prevent water from getting into the CPR.

Excellent thanks!

Apart from cleaning the screens anything else I should be testing or doing with this unit out?

Voltage to the unit?

Another question....

The banjo bolt fuel fitting that goes into the WUR - should there be a copper crush gasket at the bottom pressing against the WUR? Or should it just be at the top pressing against the fuel fitting?

AFAIK, all banjo bolt fittings require 2 copper sealing washers, 1 for each side of the fitting.
