Gas tank vent plug
« on: December 20, 2015, 01:36:09 PM »
The vent line that runs up to the front of the engine rusted away. Do I need to keep that vent open or can I just plug it?  I'm worried gas may spill out when I fill up.

Are you talking the line on the drivers side engine compartment to fuel tank?

Ok to what end ? 

I'm removing all the emissions stuff.  Where should I run the vent line?

Okay it looks like it needs to go to the charcoal canister and the canister needs a vaccum line to the crankcase.   Thanks!

Carb float bowl, not crank case!
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!
