What would this split tube cause problems with?

Wondering what problems this split in the tubing would cause?

That is part of the purge system for the gas tank if I’m correct. Any parts store will sell a barbed brass fitting to replace that line. Is that cracked barb a part of the entire valve or is it separate? My xjs is actually running a valve from a Mitsubishi. It totally works. I can get you the part number in the morning if you’d like.

Cool - thanks! Lemme get it apart and see where things are from there.
