74 Bronco - Charcoal cannister

Recommended Posts

Just bought 74 Bronco.... The line that comes out of the canister runs around the frame to the back and is cut near the back axle. The auxiliary tank looks fairly new not sure if that has anything to do with it.

 

Is this a problem ? or should I just remove the whole thing ? Not even sure why it is there....

 

Thanks for any input !

WOW.., you're fast Otto..!

That hose transfers vapors fr. the tank to the canister. Part of the "smog" system. Some states  req. all that stuff hooked up. Calif. for instance.  (don't know where you are.)  In many cases it's all abandoned.

Maybe put a little inline fuel filter on the end of the hose instead of pluging so the fuel pump doesn't draw a vacuum in the tank. (when it comes time to use it.)

Thanks Bully Bob ! The line actually is just cut not sure if it went into the fuel tank, maybe when they replaced the tank they cut and left the line there. I will try to find a good manual with some diagrams. There was an old manual in the bronco, could not find a clear diagram.

There  should be a vent valve on the top of the tank that the line hooks to.

Go to www.tomsbroncoparts.com  or www.Wildhorses4x4.com  you'll likely see the tank & related parts, that's in your rig.

These older rigs have the hose hook ups (nipples) on the driver side in the same area as the filler neck hose.

With the exception of the fuel feed.., it comes out the front/center of tank. (part of the sending unit) 

 

When buying something fr. these Bronco stores.., request a printed catalog.  Real helpful with pics, drawings, exploded views, etc.
