Instead of replacing what you currently have, why not just add 3/8" id to
the fuel tanks.  You can either tie them in or run seperate ones up and then
down to the outside.  When you install it, you can install them just past
the bulkheads.  This way, you don't have to worry about the small ones in th
tank already, and when you have a nose lower situation, your vent line will
be clear.  By keeo\ping them seperate, you should have no cross venting
problems.  You always will hve the original ones there if needed.
