I've got a cracked vapor canister. It drips fuel into the bedside and is filling the cab with fumes and smell. Can I just loop the lines, bypassing the canister, until I find another one? Anything else I need to do to avoid other issues? Thanks

I had a cracked vapor canister on my legacy when I bought it, I used duck tape and it worked until I got a new canister. Acctually it had a hole in it :grin:

JB Weld. Just do really good prep and it may last forever.

I sense autocorrect at work here :P

 

If your dripping fumes bedside, something is seriously wrong someplace.   

 

You can try JB weld. However you shouldnt be dripping liquid out of the chrarcoal canisiter cracked or not. Somehow liquid fuel is getting sucked into the canister where it is just supposed to be fumes.

Not plugged, can see the crack. Not the charcoal canister, that funky black tank in the passenger bedside. Drawing fuel in cause it's cracked? Would love to eliminate it, for now. Guess its time to experiment, just didn't want to stall on the highway cause of some vacuum/pressure etc issue. Thanks for the input

Passenger side of a brat bed, inside the removeable panel. Black, plastic tank with multiple hoses. What does it do?

Thank God, we're on the same ship......getting info for a complete overhaul of my Brat.

 

Been running mine since 93 and haven't been able to figure out what is this:

It's some kind of purge valve, should have been connected to that plastic tank you mentioned Tweek
