Ford swap, roll over valve, charcoal cannister question

Hey Guys,

I'm new member to the forum but have used it for a while now to get a ton of information. My project is a 82 CJ7 with a fiberglass body. It's a project that the PO gave up on. So far i have the drive train is in as well as the carburated Ford 351W. The suspension is OME and this forum was my saving grace. It was a really easy swap after reading what everyone else discovered. I used the search function but cant seem to get an answer to this....
I'm about to start running all new fuel lines. With this swap, do I need to keep the roll over valve and charcoal canister? It may be a stupid question but I can't figure it out. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. I have a million other questions but this is the next part I'm going to tackle. Thanks!!

I would. You can use the Ford canister if you prefer.

x2, keep it in place. The need to vent the tank has nothing to do with the engine.

thanks for the replies. So if I'm understanding this right, I should just run the vent line up to the canister and plug the other ports on the canister?

No, you'll still need a purge signal line and purge line for the canister to function properly.

If you're running a carb, you may want to connect the bowl vent, as well.

Good luck,

Matt
