85 CJ7 fuel vapor canister

I am rebuilding my CJ and am putting in a new fuel tank, sending unit, straps, lines, and I found that my canister is dry rotted, I can not find one new or AM. I read that I can use an 93 jeep grand Cherokee can. Has anyone tried the conversion or have any other ideas?

Use the 93 one. Go to Oreillys and they will price match the 25.99 that NAPA has. Or go to NAPA and get one. I just usually go to Oreillys.

Here are the easiest instructions I have found. I am picking mine up in the morning so I can finish tuning my new Weber.

Good Luck

Just did this. Works great. 93 will just drop in to the old bracket. That write up above will do ya.

One tip when you drill out the closed off port, start with a very small drill bit to get it centered on the port. Then work your way up. Starting with a large bit wanted to slip and chew up the port. It's short,so you don't have much room to lose by tearing up on the end
