charcoal canister and vacuum line plumbing ?\'s

Ok guys, this is what i've got:

i have an AMC 360 V-8 with a Quadra-jet carb, a vent line off the fuel tank, and a charcoal canister sitting on the bench.

the charcoal canister has 4 nipples on the top of it for hooking up the rubber lines just like the one in this pic:

i'm not anti-emissions, and want to run the charcoal canister. i know where the fuel tank needs to hook into, and i am going to run the carb-bowl vent into it too. my question is where do the other two hoses from the canister go to? what is the "can purge" and "purge signal"?

thanks for any info!

The small line that goes to the cap is the purge signal. This line needs ported vacuum. The other line is the purge line. It needs manifold vacuum. I teed the purge line into my PCV line. I teed the purge signal line with the ported vacuum that goes to the distributor. Hope this helps.
