this black hose from the cannister must be made from some special kind of rubber ? it keeps dirtying the rag everytime I try to wipe it down. as if rubbers coming off it all time.

is this how it's supposed to be or do I replace it.

 

has the fuel vapours breaking it up?

Just bin it, blank the pipe running back to the tank and the one from the manifold/throttle body

yeah the charcoal canisters no longer work on old cars so no harm removing it for a neatness and less chance of vac leaks

lol what you mean they no longer work on old cars? so when the car was bought new it served no purpose?

 

i will bin it then. i thought it vented fuel vapour or something

 

i'm running on carbs anyway

 

will reduce more wiring in that case 🙂

They work for the first few years then the charcoal stops doing its thing, and as your going to run carbs certainly bin it 👍
