ok so I have spent some time sifting through the forum and would like some clarification.  The rubber lines from the fuel tank to the canister?  Short line to the T Then line that continues to steel vapor line, got it.  But the short piece from the tee, can't remember if I cut it off or if it was like that.  I'm assuming it was just there for a vent, but if so should it not have had a filter or something on it?  Dam my memory just sucks sometimes.Big smile

After staring at my tank for a few minutes I realized there was another port.  Duh!  I had painted it black to match the tank and missed it first time.
