I didn't have that part in either of my 2217s that I bought, I would imagine the tubing fits in it? I would use it to bed the tubing to a 90 degree before the spray bar.

That's exactly what it is.

Yeah - lets you go over the top of the tank without adding pressure which would eventually make the tube come loose. I learned about these the very hard way after siphoning 20 gallons of water on the floor. That's also when I learned about drilling siphon break holes in the intake. That's also when I learned to use hose clamps on everything.

That is a lot of acquired wisdom/experience in a single incident!!! :D :D :D

You must be an overachiever. :thumb:
