I was wondering could I get rid of my Charcoal canister and when I do what should I do with the remaing hoses. I have a weber 32/36 carb only one tube comes from it to the canister. The canister has one line going from the fuel tank and the center smaller line is alredy pluged. Emissions are not a concern for me just performance.

So no worries!bigok

Tank to carb sounds simple enough, have to ask this....any dangers with this? Will the smell of gas also increase do u think, then again the canister is so old it's not working anyway. Thank you for the helprockonn

You can ditch it. Just use a piece of fuel hose and tie together the two tank vent lines into a little K&N style mini filter. That way, your tank will remain properly vented. Example at left near the battery in this pic:

The 2 fuel lines.... I have only one vent line that I know of or should I keep looking. Like the K&N Filter gig I have one just laying around still in the package. The one vent line is a ridged line at the pasanger side engine bay which has a fuel line attached. Man I love your Zuki and your step by step build up has helped me out alot.

Thank u lots of help, other than some hard starts once my engine is warmed up it runs like a champ now. Next is to patch the rust spots up and leaf springs. When I get finished I will post pics for others.
