Those pictures give me flashbacks! I miss my 5.0's so bad and I should have never sold either Mustang, my all time favorite daily driver. You have to be proud, it looks great between the frame rails

Charcoal Canister

I decided to mount my charcoal canister in the same location as the stock jeep canister. My CJ had never had the emissions system hooked up since I have owned it. Luckily I still had the liquid check valve in the fender well but the rollover valve had a broken nipple(replaced with the DeLorean Part) and the charcoal canister was missing. I picked up a canister out of an early ninety's Mustang and also picked up the canister purge solenoid. Got them both for $5 at the local salvage yard.


It came with this perfect little mounting bracket I had to attach to the firewall with two bolts. I couldn't mount it flush because the top would hit the lip for the floorboard so I added a couple nuts to the bolts to basically turn them into studs and to help space the mounting bracket out a little.


I mounted up the lower fender rock guard and placed the bracket in place to make sure everything was going to fit.


All bolted up, it is mounted pretty solid.


You can see how I spaced it out just a bit farther with a couple washers. They also distribute the load on the mount a little better. The canister has a lip on the bottom where it slides into the mount then locks in with a single bolt on top.


I got rid of the stock green plastic tubing and connected it to the 1/4" steel vapor line from the valves in the rear with standard fuel injection hose. I zip tied the canister purge valve to the brake lines. I'm not overly pleased with that spot but it appears it will work fine and should not cause any problems. The line from the manifold to the valve is also connected. I'll get the wiring sorted out when I get to that later.

Mike the engine looks great sitting in place. I remember years ago the Accell wires were the thing to have. I bet they work fine. Keep up the good work my friend!!

Hey there, Coiz. I've got a question for you. My 5.0 accessory package up front has an idler pulley way down on the passenger side front that is coming too close to my up CA mount... I think I may need to lose it.

What setup is your 5.0 out of and does it have AC with it?

Thanks, Jim

Thanks for the comments everyone. I have been working on the wiring quite a bit lately. Lots of electrons flowing through my brain. I'm up to around 50 splices with solder and adhesive heat shrink. I should post some details on that later.

Jeepsterjc,
Mine was out of an early 90's Mustang. I don't have A/C but I remember having to buy the A/C eliminator kit to clean it up and provide an easier belt routing. I see all of the other 5.0L on here with a different belt routing than mine. They all have the long run between the crank and the alternator. I routed it so the long run, which is shorter overall, is between the power steering and the crank. I am pretty sure my overall belt length is considerably shorter than theirs. Mine is a 6k703, so six rib 703 cm long. I don't have any type of idler in the area you described.

I've got about 80% of the wiring done. Just getting the grill back together so I can finish off the wiring to the cooling fans and the head lights. Also waiting on a couple parts for my gauges to finish up the dash.

Headed to Miller Park on our chartered bus to watch the Cubs/Brewers game today. I hope to post some updated pictures sometime tonight or tomorrow. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Thanks for the picture. That front end of your will certainly clear both of my upper control arm mounts on the axle. Shopping time for me now

edit added- And thanks for the link to the A/C Emilinator kit at Ford Racing. It may dome in handy. Also- it looks like my F350 Power Steering Pump may be the same bolt pattern as the Mustang... It would be great if it fit in place.
