That 2 pin system is a ball-type check valve, and a locator/locking pin.

The locator pin has a groove that catches a metal locking clip on the mating piece.

The business prong has a spring loaded ball bearing to seal the fuel line; the engine side usually has a little spring loaded pin that opens the port on the engine side, and pushes the ball bearing back on the hose, which allows fuel from the hose into the engine.

[note: This is also why simply disconnecting the fuel line and running 'til the motor quits won't empty the float bowls: the vacuum formed by the closed-off motor connector will cause fuel starvation before the fuel is burned off.]

I don't know exactly what size is used on your Zuke; not that it matters: when I replaced the hose end connector on my Honda 40, I ended up going through 3 brands (all labelled as Honda replacement parts) before finding one that worked, and locked onto the fitting adequately.

Best bet is to remove the parts, and take them with you when you shop for replacements (or better yet, pay the money and get OEM replacements.)

I see your problem. Unfortunately, I can't help, as I run a Yamaha. The Tempo site lists Suzuki fuel connectors separate from Mercs, though, so I figure it has to be different somehow.

Luck;

Looks like the type used on Suzuki 4-strokes. The older 2-strokes used a couple of different types, but not a two pin as you have shown. Due to the relative newness of this type, I suspect it may be a dealer part.
