Install a electric fuel pump up by the tank, and the need for the return line will be eliminated.

Speaking of return lines - the return has to regulate the pressure so what are the filters set to? Why don't they compensate for the replacement pumps that put out too much pressure?

Factory return line is only 3/16" ID. The factory pump overcomes that leak easily..

The retun line on a Holley style regulator is to prevent "Dead head" pressure spikes and allows the regulator to operate in a narrow Hysteresus. [ range of output variations].

Wagon, YES! Just what GM did for the smog cars with a fuel return line.

I can tell you what a friend of mine did on his 64 Spyder. ( a car I later bought from him )

He replaced that piece you have pictured with a plain piece of hose in the vent line. Than he drilled a hole in the gas tank filler tube and soldered in a 1" long
steel tube to accommodate the return line.

He did this because that "T" always had gas settled in it so the gas tank wouldn't vent properly when you were trying to fill it. The modification worked great, The returning gas whet back into the filler tube instead of plugging the vent tube

As I recall he had to pull the gas tank out to get the filler tube out.

Here's a photo of my California Corvair's turbo T when I installed my fuel tank. It's been in place since about 3 years now with no issues:
