Is brake T on 9" rear threaded in?

I have striped the old brake lines from my 9" rear housing but left the "T" because I wasn't exactly sure how it comes off (no visible attachment). It also appears to be quite badly corroded so I'm leery about messing with it at all. Is this thing threaded into the housing and if I remove it will I have a hole I need to plug or do I need to get the exact Ford replacement T for some reason. I'm also wondering if this T provides some sort of venting for the housing.

Usually, the splitter (fitting) is held to the housing with the housing vent. What are you working on?

This is the rear end in my "rat" project (pics in my journal if you haven't checked it out previously).

Might it be best just to leave the old one as it is? I figured I would use a new T and just hold it in place with a couple of weld on clips around the tubing coming off each end.

I might try cleaning the original up this afternoon and shooting a couple close up pics so you can see what I'm talking about.

Well...You need the vent and it needs to be operational. Sometimes they will be held in with a capscrew and this capscrew will actually have a drilled passage to act as a vent. Ideally, it sould have a barbed vent that you can attach a breather line to to keep the vent from spitting. It's the little details that make the car.

Post a picture if you can. The vents are readily available under FORD Basic PN 4022. The thread will be NPT.

Turns out to be a case of asking a question before doing adequate investigation. If I had opened the box my new rear brake hose came in I would have seen my answer. The new hose comes with the splitter, and a pre drilled hole for the vent barb/attachment tube. Once I saw that I new the old splitter must be removable...and it was. The barb is actually a hollow bolt that goes all the way through the splitter and then threads right into the housing. So it was an easy off...easy on deal. But thanks for the guidance Kultulz.

Sorry. I stand corrected. I thought it was another BOWTIE PROJECT.

Can you ever forgive me?

It was your use of the word rat that scared me. I thought it was a BBC project. I have since cruised your project manual. Nice work.
