Fuel tank leak

I recently bought a 1993 MX6 LS to fix up and I need help figuring out how to fix this fuel leak.

I don't know what that part is, but there is another one of those in the back and that one is completely loose.

I can just lift it up and take it out. Do I need to replace these or use tank epoxy? Any help is appreciated.

Are you saying the leak is coming from the clamps/hose?
The leak is coming from one of the vent valves. The rubber seals on both vent valves are really cracked and they also seem a little melted? Not sure if the previous owner put something on those rubber parts and that messed them up.

I'm changing the rubber seals for sure, but I'm not sure if I need to change the valves too. Is there a way to test them? I'm also having a hard time finding them. Will the ones made for Probes fit?

When did it leak ? These are just passages for vapor, not fuel. Did it only leak when you completely filled up the tank ?
It was worse when the tank was full. I would only notice a few drops while parked, but the car always smelled like gas.
Yes the probe uses the same ones
Thank you. I can only find Probe ones.
