sounds like your 'new' tank lost the vent nipple on the filler neck?
the vapour tank has 3 nipples, one at top and 2 at bottom.
top: this one has the little vent valve and goes to that hard line running along the cylinder head - that looks correct on your set up.
middle: this goes to the filler neck (on yours it goes to the tank)
bottom: goes back to tank (on yours capped off)
see post #3 here for original set up:
diagram is useful too (not spider, OK, but same thing!):

|1986velocealfa||I just got rid of the canister and installed a vented gas cap off a ‘65 Giulia Sprint. I installed a hose going from the tank to the fitting on the filler neck. At this point are any of these canisters still working properly?|

Liquid evaporator plumbing
My car a '73 SPICA Spider had a new fuel tank installed in it's history. Everything is operational except filling the tank is a nursing project to get gas into the tank from the pump. On further investigation, it seems the plumbing to the liquid-vapor -evaporator is askew the bottom vent fronm the L-E is capped with a rubber nipple.. Is there something going on here that needs attention? There is no filler neck vent either.
