    I ripped my charcoal canister out when we did my rear suspension and left it out due to time constraints. It did not effect anything from what I could tell. No SES code, runs well, etc....

    I thought all it did was filter fumes from the fuel tank. Based on that, I'd leave it out if you don't wanna screw with it.

    You'll still need a vent line for the cell. Do you have to pass emmissions?

    I don't know if you'll pass in ohio without it.

    Yeah, the canister just puts the fuse in there for emissions. A cell will have a 'vent' fitting marked.. just stick a straight -an to rubber converter and put a filter on it.

    I believe the earlier models came with cans that had 6 connections points or something like that. I got one out of a newer fuel injected model at the wrecking yard that has only 2 inlets on it. You can get rid of all the crap lines that you don't need. I've got one coming in from the the fuel tank, and 2 t'd together coming from the carb.
    It helps clean up the the mess of vacuum hoses, plus you won't get in trouble if you get pulled over and they do a road side inspection. Typically you'd get a fine if you don't have all ports used on the cannister. At least you do here in Ontario.

    I would. It should be a vaccuum line. If you don't cap it off you'll have a vaccuum leak.
