charcoal canister

Since there is no emissions left in the jeep I was wondering if it is fine to eliminate the charcoal canister? Will this mess up the pcv system??

Re: charcoal canister

A good place to check out all your emission parts and how they work together is http://www.off-road.com/jeep/tech/engine/amc258.html

Hope this helps you out.

Sorry it's not clicky, haven't figured out how to do it yet.

Re: charcoal canister

Thanks for the site, Has anyone removed this before? Is there any reason why I shouldn't? The only things left are the CTO, EGR, and Canister. Since all the other emissions is removed and there is no computer I don't see any reason why I can't remove the 3 things left. Does anyone disagree, before I remove them? thanks Mike

Re: charcoal canister

Thanks Taz.

I don't see a problem with removing the canister, seems like everything else is already gone anyways. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: charcoal canister

The thing I like about the charcoal canister is that all the fumes from the gas tank are sucked into it. Might make a difference if your jeep is parked in a garage.

Re: charcoal canister

If you do remove the charcoal canister what do you do with the hose that goes back to the gas tank? Plug it?

Re: charcoal canister

I say yank it all out. My '79 CJ-5 has none of the old emissions stuff left, including the charcoal canister. The two lines that went to the fuel tank are just plugged at the tank and I have had no problems with engine perf., fumes, or pressure in the tank. Just make sure the lines that used to go the carb are plugged at the carb so you don't have any vacuum leaks.
