I'm not sure I understand what you're talking about. My vent tube is soldered to a small brass thread that screws into the injector bell housing. The "through-hole" to the "vent" is actually machined into the injector bell housing. I don't have a "larger brass tube". Could you post a picture so we can understand a little better?

No, it's not meant to do that. If it slides in, you'll get a short fill. If it comes out, you'll get an even shorter fill! Get a new one, they're cheap IIRC.

E-mail them. They will send you a replacement for free. They may ask for the damage part back, but they do pay for the shipping. I had to return my 835cc tank, so I have first hand experience with this ;)
